WASPaLM Revises Web Site
The WASPaLM web site is undergoing a major revision in order to make it "mobile friendly" and to provide for both a more attractive site and easier navigation. We are adding some new features including our new Facebook Page and a new connection with PayPal to make contributions to the World Pathology Foundation and the Gordon Signy Fellowship easier to make. We expect to take the new site "live" within the next six weeks. In the meantime, please be patient with us as we transition current content to the new site and add new content there.
World Pathology Foundation Trustees Meet in Cancun: Revise Gordon-Signy Fellowship and Articles of Incorporation
The Trustees of the World Pathology Foundation met on November 18, 2015 and elected new officers. Dr. Roberto Verna of Italy was elected President; Dr. Looi Lai-Meng of Malaysia first Vice-President; Dr. Roberto Ruiz Arenas of Mexico second Vice-President; and Dr. Henry Travers of the United States Secretary-Treasurer.
The Trustees provided for an increase in the Gordon-Signy stipend, at the discretion of the Board of Regents, to provide up to $7,500 for Fellowships with training exceeding 89 days (3 months or more). In addition, the Trustees revised the application procedure for the Fellowships to require copies of qualifying credentials (diplomas and certificates), a curriculum vitae, a letter of reference from the applicant's primary pathology training program and disclosure of other sources of support for the proposed training.
The Articles of Incorporation were revised to combine the offices of Secretary and Treasurer into a single office of Secretary-treasurer and to provide for a second Vice-President.
The requirements and forms for the 2017 Gordon Signy Fellowships are now available.
