The questions which the candidates were expected to answer ("Board of Publications Hosts Internet Candidates' Page," April- May 2004) were not developed at the March board of publications meeting. The questions were developed by an ad hoc subcommittee of BOP members who are not eligible to run for re-election or who do not intend to seek elected office under the present ACB constitution and bylaws.
There was an error in the notice about the Family Study of Age-Related Macular Degeneration ("Here and There," March 2004). The study is seeking families in which there are three or more living siblings with at least one person having AMD. If your family is eligible, call 1-800-219-9157.
