International Society for Agricultural Meteorology Information
Vice-President: Prof. Giampiero Maracchi
INSAM elects correspondents among those contributing material to the web site regularly. To decentralize the stimulation of the collection of material, these correspondents will interact with the president and vice-presidents. For this reason we are also expanding the number of additional vice-presidents of INSAM. New vice-presidents are mentioned below. They will actively solicit contributions but we all would highly appreciate it if you sent us your material by yourself on a regular basis. Without your contributions, INSAM is not functioning well.
Correspondents for the founding

From Cuba Mrs. Ismabel Dominguez Hurtado, M.Sc.
From Cuba Dr. Roger E. Rivero Vega

Founding members of INSAM
In our initiating letter on INSAM, widely disseminated (most recently also in Agricultural and Forest Meteorology, Vol. 123 (1/2), 2004, pp. 121 - 123), we offered founding memberships to colleagues that wanted to support us with a one time donation of at least 70 Euro (or the equivalent in dollars) and corporate membership to organizations supplying a one time donation of 500 Euro (or the equivalent in dollars). For the above purposes we are asking to forward this letter to as many colleagues in agrometeorology that you think may be interested to become a "founding member" by sending 70 Euro (or 500 Euro for corporate founding members) to the following account:
