 Dear listers:
Greetings! This short notice is a friendly reminder for all Latin American coral reef researchers, students, managers, etc. attending to ICRS to join us in the Latin-American Reef Encounter. There is no need to pre-register, just show up if you are not a member of ISRS, or if you are a member but still feel there is a need to improve the representation of Latin American membership. You are also invited if you feel there is a need to improve the organization of Latin American coral reef researchers.

Latin-American Reef Encounter Date: Wednesday, 22 June 2016   Time: 19:30 - 21:30
Location: 305 A/B

Meeting goals and objectives:
 The meeting is intended to bring together all Latin American and Caribbean coral reef researchers to discuss the need to formally organize a Latin American Chapter of the ISRS. A quick examination of the active membership of ISRS suggests that Latin American reef researchers are significantly under-represented in ISRS. This activity will be an 1 hr meeting to discuss with Latin American and Caribbean researchers, students, managers, and representatives from ISRS board of directors the best strategies for enhancing the representation of Latin American reef researchers in ISRS, the willingness and need to formally establish a Latin American Chapter of ISRS, and the possibility of developing Spanish-written products at ISRS web page, including Spanish-written articles in Reef Encounter. This will represent a first step towards organizing a small team of scientists willing to collaborate in such efforts.
