ISHBH will be meeting at the JMIH meeting in Norfolk, Virginia July 12-16. - The Agenda

 Dear Fellow ISHBH Members


As noted in a previous posting, ISHBH will be meeting at the JMIH meeting in Norfolk, Virginia July 12-16. Our luncheon and business meeting will convene at 12:00 on July 16th at Grain (, which is just across from the meeting venue. After we settle in and orders are placed we will start the business meeting. Our last business meeting was held via Zoom on 29 September 2022. At that time the Executive Committee was reelected so no election will take place until 2024 (so if you are interested in running, please start thinking about it now!).


Meeting Agenda ISHBH 2023 Business Meeting in Norfolk, Virginia, USA (July 16)
1. Opening of the meeting and welcome

2. Report of the Executive Committee, opportunity for questions
3. Review and approval of 2022 financial statement and proposed 2023-24 budget.
4. Old business (Wahlgren endowment)
5. New business
6. Closing of the meeting


The financial statement will be posted shortly and will be available at the in-person meeting.


Also, the ISHBH has been encouraged by the local host of the 10th World Congress (and ISHBH member) Prof. Indraneil Das to consider submitting a symposium proposal. This would be a wonderful opportunity for us and if enough members intend to go to Kuching next year, we could offer either a general or more specific history of herpetology symposium. Please see the WCH website and the symposium call. If you are interested in presenting a historical talk in Kuching in August 2024, or if you would like to organize such a symposium, please contact Aaron Bauer ( as soon as possible.

Call for Symposia for the 10th World Congress of Herpetology is now open. Please visit website ( and check out the Symposia section ( 


I look forward to seeing some of you in Norfolk next week. For those who cannot attend in person, please feel free to send any questions or issues you would like raised. A report of the business meeting will be posted in late July or early August.


Best wishes,




Aaron M. Bauer

Chair, ISHBH
