As vice chair, Gross, secretary in Botany and Plant Pathology, will be chair of the Bridge Committee, be a member of the Communication and Membership subcommittees and chair CSSAC meetings when the chair is not available. Gross, who takes office in September, also will succeed the chair the following year. The current vice chair, Betty Kroll, will be chair in 2013-14.

Also during CSSAC's May 14 meeting, current chair Gary Cater and members Peggy Haq and Anna Sledd were elected emeritus members for next year. Emeritus members are nonvoting and provide knowledge to newer members, assist with continuing or ongoing projects, and assist CSSAC in representation on University committees.

CSSAC members are eligible for an emeritus position upon completion of their regular CSSAC membership. Emeritus members serve a one-year term starting in September.
