The Society shall sponsor an International tularemia Conference every third year. The Society shall endeavor to have the meeting rotate among a variety of geographical areas. This conference shall be managed by the Symposium Committee.
There shall be a General Business Meeting of the Society at each International Tularemia Conference. The President shall present a report on the affairs of the Society. The Treasurer shall present an audited account of the finances.
The Society may award a prize or prizes at the General Meetings. These may take the form of prizes for (a) excellent work as a student or scholarship applicant, (b) recognition of accomplishment in the field, or for (c) service to TULISOC. Award decisions will be made by the Scientific Committee.
Awarding of prizes in category (a) is encouraged at all scientific meetings and should be included in meeting budgets.
