The next Yeast Genetics and Molecular Biology (YGM) meeting will be
held at the University of Washington, Seattle from July 25-30, 2000.
The organization of the meeting is divided into six areas of expertise
shown below.  Each subcommittee consists of three members, with a
rotating chair.  People serve three times, the final time as chair of
the subcommittee.  The major responsibility of each subcommittee is
determining the platform session speakers, usually in March/April
prior to the meeting.  All the subcommittee work is done via email and
conference calls and only the chairs of the subcommittees attend the
meeting to finalize the program.  All committee members are expected
to attend the YGM meeting, and the entire group meets during the YGM
to discuss global issues concerning meeting venue, changes in program
format, etc.

You can send in your nominations for subcommittee members by filling
