 On behalf of the workshop organizers and the writing committee, I am
pleased to let you know that a solid draft Implementation Plan for the NIBA
is now ready for public comment.  The plan is available at
http://blogs.aibs.org/niba/ .  Comments may be posted to the comment
section of this website or submitted via email to publicpolicy at aibs.org.  **

** **

Unfortunately, we only have a small window of opportunity to solicit,
consider and incorporate public comments.  However, the writing committee
has pledged to consider and address all suggestions received by November
26, 2012.  ****

** **

The writing committee is also very interested in comments and suggestions
from stakeholders who did not participate in the September workshop.  Thus,
we are requesting that you refer interested colleagues to the website and
encourage them to carefully review the document and provide any comments. **

** **

Once again, thank you for your participation and continuing efforts toward
the goal of developing an Implementation Plan for the Network Integrated
Biocollections Alliance. ****

Thank you,****

Robert Gropp****
