Organization Control
-5 chapters and each director's policy and planning for chapter management -

It has been nine years since the establishment of the WOS. The International Oyster Symposium (IOS) conferences have been a great success and have built up the WOS. However, the WOS has a lot of potential as well as a conference provider. Although the members have increased globally, the society is now in the course of networking. For building up a global network of the oyster industry, our future task will be to network the members. The future activity of WOS will clarify issues by area and by their priority according to the WOS's vision, mission and goals to develop the activity. Therefore, we must organize control by area and enhance information functions.

According to the above circumstances, Dr. Katsuyoshi Mori, the WOS President, expressed his own view to all the members of the Steering Committee in December, 2012. After careful consideration, the introduction of 5 chapters and the Chapter Directors were formally approved.



                                                                              (May, 2016)
