Committee Size:6 to 8
Committee Rotation: 3 Years

Committee Membership:
The committee shall consist of six full members with each serving a three year term. The committee is composed of representation from all four of the disciplines (biology, chemistry, medicine and physics) plus two representatives at large. In addition, there is at least one appointed representative from the Scholars-in Training Committee. All members are appointed by the President, subject to approval by Council. Generally, one representative in each discipline is sufficient. However, two representatives are typically necessary in Biology as it usually has the largest percentage of applicants.

Committee Responsibilities: The committee is responsible for reviewing all new membership applicants. Each committee member is responsible for reviewing the applications received in his/her discipline and forwarding the review comments in a timely fashion to the Chair of the committee. The Chair will send the final review indicating either acceptance or rejection to the Society’s management group. Letters of notification signed by the Secretary-Treasurer are sent to all applicants. The committee is also responsible for communications with each member whose dues payment is in arrears prior to dropping the member from the Society.

Committee Reporting: The committee reports it activities to the RRS Council through the Secretary/Treasurer.
