The President read out a letter which he had received from the Foreign Secretary of the US National Academy of Sciences. This letter confirmed the invitation from the US National Committee for Crystallography, on behalf of the US National Academy of Sciences and in collaboration with the American Crystallographic Association, to hold this General Assembly and Congress in Seattle in 1996. The meeting would be hosted in accordance with ICSU policies, in particular with regard to free circulation of scientists. The President reported that the Executive Committee had met the Organizing Committee Chairman and the Programme Committee Chairman and found their reports very satisfactory and proposed acceptance of the invitation.
