We have the revised the Board meeting schedule to note that only one Board a month will meet, rather than both Boards. This decision is due to the decrease in Full Board studies/submissions being reviewed. If a study is submitted that requires Full Board review and it cannot make it onto the monthly agenda, we will attempt to schedule an impromptu meeting to minimize any time delays.

A very special thank you to our reviewers, administrators, and researchers for helping make our averages so low!
