With source code readily available, hackers have considerable information on programming flaws that may permit access to the machines. 5. The maintenance of the web site, as the editorship of the journals of the Society, requires considerable time and dedication of a volunteer to maintain the credibility and value of the service. The editorships have been on a rotation basis of five years. I feel that it is also best to have a rotation of webmasters as well. It may be in the best interests of the Society to establish the position of webmaster on a similar five year term. I began my service to the Society in the summer of 1996, with my appointment as chair of the Electronic Publication Committee and the establishment of the botany.org domain. As of the annual meetings in 2001, I will be completing my fifth year of service to the Society as webmaster. A major item of business for the Web Page Committee will therefore be to conduct a national search for a new webmaster. I will be willing to help as system administrator and for special projects, but I will not be able to consider serving as webmaster for another term. Respectfully submitted, Scott Russell, Webmaster and Chair, Web Page Committee Members of committee, 1999-2000: Wayne Elisens (2000) Chuck Daghlian (2001) J. S.

February 25, 2000 Report from the BSA Endowment Fund Prioritization Committee To: Members of the BSA Executive Committee From: David Baum Chris Haufler Pat Holmgren Ruth Stockey Nancy Dengler, Chair Our committee makes the recommendations listed below for expenditure of the 1999- 2000 interest from the BSA endowment funds. In carrying our our charge we first sought suggestions from the BSA membership by placing the announcement (below) on the BSA website and by circulating it to all members of the BSA Council. We also sent individual messages to chairs of BSA committees. In all, we received just seven suggestions for expenditure of funds and rank these below. One of the most exciting initiatives, proposed by Joe Armstrong, was to make the BSA a "Botanical Society of the Americas" and to use our funds to reach out to the Americas south of us by encouraging memberships and subsidizing subscriptions and travel to annual meetings. We hope that this initiative will be discussed and acted upon by the Executive Committee. Announcement: The BSA ad hoc committee on the expenditure of the 1999-2000 interest from the BSA endowment funds is seeking suggestions from the BSA membership on how this year's amount of #23,000 might best be spent. The Endowment Fund guidelines from the BSA Financial Advisory Committee are: The purpose of the Endowment Fund is to increase the monetary assets of the Society in order to provide income to fund major initiatives, travel

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
