2024 International Affairs Committee Application

About the Committee
The International Affairs Committee aims to link BSA with other national botanical societies outside the U.S. and connect BSA members to international botanical events, including the International Botanical Congress (IBC) which is held every six years. The committee seeks to support young botanists attending the IBC, as well as other important international meetings. The committee informs the society regarding international activities impacting the study of plants through articles in the Plant Science Bulletin, symposiums and colloquium at the annual Botanical meetings, and other activities. Each year, new members join the committee as the same number of members rotates off. This committee is chaired by a member serving their third year on the committee.


Member Criteria
Committee membership is open to all BSA membership categories. The committee seeks members that can contribute unique international perspectives. Committee members are expected to participate and be engaged in committee activities and have a genuine interest in the mission of the committee.

Time Commitment
At least one meeting per year which normally takes place during the Botany conference, but open to virtual meetings as needed. Members serve three-year terms, except for student members whose terms are for two years.

This committee has one student as part of its composition.
