With this mission in mind, the GSM Committee will strive to select sites and identify TOC Chairs for several years into the future (three years, if possible). The Committee will be accessible to and provide mentorship/advice to the Technical Organizing Committees via regular conference calls and/or electronic communication (e.g., e-mail, texts, etc.). The Committee will maintain a history of past meetings and collect relevant documents/advice to assist the Chair(s) in planning future meetings (to be maintained by the ISES Secretariat). The Committee will document its operations in the GSM Annual Meeting Handbook, which will be updated as necessary. The Committee will interact with other professional societies to develop opportunities for joint meetings. The Committee Chair, or representative, will make recommendations and periodic reports to the ISES Board on future meeting progress.
