The following additional Email was sent to all members on 18.12.2007:

Dear Members of IBS,
Below are the names of candidates for the executive committee of the International Society for Biotherapy, who accepted to be nominated in the forthcoming elections. Please put an X next to the name of each candidate you wish to elect and send this message by “Reply” (to: kostam@cc.huji.ac.il). Although originally we thought to have 6 members at large, we think that having an additional one would only strengthen the executive committee. As such you can elect all the 7 candidates at large.

John Church, Past president                       (   )
Sagiv Ben-Yakir, Secretary                        (   )
