    Unless there are major changes to the way CFSAC acts and conducts business, I am not sure if we are not better off if they do not renew the charter.

    Dimitrikoff resigned and five members are leaving. Six members out of 11 need replacement by the spring meeting.

    There are some fantastic people on that list - and a lot of them are very angry people. They're exactly what we need now. Angry people who aren't afraid to express it.

    My unsolicited suggestion to everyone:

    If you want some of these folks to serve on CFSAC, write/ fax/ e-mail (better because you start a paper trail) or call CFSAC staff and tell them so, even if it's just a few sentences. I've done that before and now with this list, I will do some more.


    CFSAC's address is:

    Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Advisory Committee (CFSAC)
    Office of the Assistant Secretary for Health
    U.S. Department of Health and Human Services
    Hubert H. Humphrey Building, Room 712E
    200 Independence Avenue SW.
    Washington, DC 20201
    (202) 690-7650 (Voice)
    (202) 401-4005 (FAX)
    cfsac@hhs.gov (Email)
