OOIFB Members

NSF selected the initial members of the OOIFB from a pool of nominations and self-nominations. As is normal when groups such as this are formed, members are given staggered terms. The normal term is 3 years. Members are eligible for renewal to a second term. OOI nominates two members. New appointees will be made by the OOIFB.
