4 May, 2010

Dear Colleagues,

The participants of the Business Session of ISSIS-IX (2001) at Padova, Italy, resolved the document entitled Draft (2001), which is presented below.

Article 3 in Draft (2001) below was supposed to outline the procedure for resolving site selection.

However, at ISSIS-XII (2010) we encountered an unpredictable case of three countries inviting to host ISSIS-XIII (2013).

Therefore, the International Advisory Committee is proposing to amend Article 3 by inclusion of 6 subarticles, as outlined in Draft (2013) below.

The amended ISSIS constitution will be available on the Scale Insect Forum, and open to your comments and suggestions.

If you wish to suggest and comment, please send me ( to:  yairbd@netvision.net.il  )  

Finally, the Amended Constitution will be submitted for resolution by the First Business Session at ISSIS-XIII (2013), Sofia, Bulgaria.

Best Wishes.

Yair Ben-Dov
