||2009 Membership Committee Report
The Membership Committee, conducting its business over email and via conference calls this past year, considered two new university applicants for UCAR membership, approved two new Academic Affiliates and reviewed 9 membership renewal applications.
The Membership Committee conducted two site visits to the new applicant universities. On 28 May 2009, Guosheng Liu, Jack Fellows from UCAR and I visited the University of Maine, and on 18 May 2009, John Merrill, Amy Clement and Rick Anthes from UCAR, visited George Mason University. We recommend approving their bids for UCAR membership.
In addition, we recommend approval for all Member institutions whose applications we reviewed this year.
The Members will vote on our recommendations at the Annual Meeting; please review the reports below. No vote is needed on the Academic Affiliate recommendations; the Membership Committee’s approval completes their affiliation application process.
I want to thank the members of the committee for reading the applications and for writing the reports—Robert Black, Kristie Boering, Amy Clement, Larry Di Girolamo, Russell Elsberry, Guosheng Liu, Gerald Mace, Nicole Molders, Jonathan Overpeck, and Diane Pataki.
