Communications Advisory Board

The Communications Advisory Board (CAB) advises the ANR Communication Services & Information Technology (CSIT) unit on general policy and recommends guidelines for Associate Editors (AEs), ANR peer review, and annual budgetary allocations. The board, which meets quarterly, includes ANR specialists, faculty, and advisors, who may or may not also be Associate Editors. Board members are appointed by the ANR Associate Director of Cooperative Extension and the Agricultural Experiment Station and serve staggered three-year terms. The Director of CSIT and the Chair of the Associate Editors serve on the board as ex-officio members. Remaining meetings for 2016 have been scheduled for September 16 and November 18. Meetings take place in the Sacramento Valley Conference Room at the Davis ANR Building, 2801 Second Street, Davis.

Here is the current roster of the Communications Advisory Board:
