SCAR XXXII IP21: Secretariat Report
Title: Secretariat Report
Authors: M Sparrow, R Badhe
With less than 2.5 full time staff the Secretariat has a full workload, particularly during Open Science Conference/Business Meeting/ Delegates’ Meeting years. Quarterly reports are produced for EXCOM and are available from: https://www.scar.org/secretariat-about/quarterly-reports/ (updated link). Temporary/ voluntary staff are used when necessary (see paper).
Budget Implications: $8,000 additional in salaries for 2014 to hire temporary staff to help run the abstract submission system/ deal with queries, liaise with conveners, chairs and local organizing committee and run SCAR business meetings. This would be for 2-3 days a week for the 5 months previous to the meeting itself.
