Field activities related to the National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON) will result in the collection of a variety of biodiversity samples that will be archived in museums around the United States. NEON is currently seeking members of the scientific community to serve on the Collections Technical Working Group. This group will provide guidance on NEON activities related to scientific research collections.

The Collections Technical Working Group will respond to NEON inquiries for input and comment on scientific, technical, and implementation issues related to the collections program approximately four times per year.  NEON seeks a diverse group with expertise and experience in collections and archiving to help ensure that NEON collection activities have a strong scientific base and will produce a resource that is most useful to the community.  Both self-nominations and/or suggestions of names of colleagues who might be interested are welcome.

Nominations are due by 15 May 2013. For more information please visit http://neoninc.org/content/membersCTWG.
