<p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size:11.0pt">We want to especially highlight some work we have done on our website and by-laws. You can check out our new by-laws here:

 enrich their lives as postdocs: <a href="http://ypa.yale.edu/resources">http://ypa.yale.edu/resources</a>. If you have any ideas for resources that could be included on this page we would love to hear them.<o:p></o:p></span></p>

 the longest period of time. If you have suggestions or comments about any items and you couldn’t attend our meeting, feel free to email
