The annual report card assesses the health of the Subgroups using parameters such as ac- tivities, participation, symposium attendance, membership, and finances. The idea is to track Subgroup performance over time. If, for exam- ple, grades are poor over a two- to three-year period, Council may decide to put a Subgroup on probation or even eventually sunset an underperforming Subgroup. The incubator program is envisioned as a mechanism to explore new topic areas and determine whether there are opportunities within an existing Subgroup to foster an ad hoc group or to see whether a new Subgroup might emerge. Ad hoc groups can run incubator events for two years to demonstrate contin-
ued, sustained interest in the topic before pur- suing Subgroup status. The incubator program could also be used to support groups focused not on a specific scientific topic but on another shared interest or demographic. All these recommendations are intended to help ensure sustainability and viability of a strong Subgroup program well into the future. We look forward to seeing you in San Francisco on Subgroup Saturday (https:/www.biophysics. org/2022meeting/program/subgroup-satur- day) and for the rest of the Annual Meeting! — Erin Sheets , Secretary — Jennifer Pesanelli , Executive Officer BPS Job Board Special Post your job and save!
