The Genetics Society of America (GSA) is pleased to announce the selection of nine new Trainee Representatives who will serve on the Board of Directors and the Society’s programmatic committees.

The GSA Trainee Representative program began in 2013 as a way to engage students and postdocs in the Society and offer an opportunity for the voices and perspective of early-career scientists to be heard at the board level. Trainees were selected through a competitive application process based on demonstrated leadership roles, volunteer service, and letters of recommendation. These new representatives will hold two-year terms beginning January 1, 2016.
