AETA Members,

With another year of AETA’s quarterly newsletter, A Closer Look, coming to a close, the education committee has been reflecting on the wealth of knowledge that can be found in earlier editions of the newsletter.

To make it easier to search the electronic archives of A Closer Look, the education committee will be adding tags to previous newsletter articles. In doing so, members can better use the AETA site’s existing search engine to find information on topics that may relate to them.

The newsletter article tags will be an ongoing process, so keep checking back!

Sincerely,

The AETA Education Committee

On December 15, 2015 the following letter was sent to AETA from FASS:

Since 2009, FASS has hosted a science policy program to create a voice for animal science, funded by the American Dairy Science Association®, American Society of Animal Science, and Poultry Science Association. The success of this program has been driven by an effective partnership between The Randel Group and active participation by committed members of the FASS Science Policy Committee. The Randel Group represents FASS in Washington, DC as well as at other events and meetings throughout the country. Representatives to the FASS Science Policy Committee have been appointed from the three groups noted above as well as the ADSA-ASAS Midwest.

“The one unchangeable certainty is that nothing is certain or unchangeable.”
~John F. Kennedy

The Federation of Animal Science Societies (FASS) has recently made the decision to make some additional staffing changes in the FASS Membership Department. In order to best serve the needs of AETA, the decision was made in late November to remove Nancy Hayes as Executive Assistant for AETA. Nancy is fairly new to our organization and was only with AETA for a short time. Nancy will remain on the FASS staff, however she is being re-assigned to other duties. Jeremy Holzner will take over the role of Executive Assistant/Event Coordinator for AETA and will be the main contact for the board and AETA membership. Jeremy has been with FASS for over seven years and also serves as the FASS Membership Department Director. Jeremy’s strongest attributes are his excellent customer service and attention to detail.

This change will occur immediately. Jeremy and Nancy will work closely through the transition (although Jeremy has already been doing much of the work to this point). FASS firmly believes that this change will reach our main goal at FASS, which is to provide the best service to AETA.

Jeremy can be reached at jeremyh@assochq.org or 217-356-3182 extension 138.

Happy Holidays from FASS!
