At the dinner hosted by BoT Chair Emerlinda Roman, the Board expressed their deep gratitude to the departing members for their distinguished service.
As member of the Board, Mr. Syeduzzaman took his duties as chair of the Finance Committee very seriously and worked to mobilize significant funding for IRRI research from the Bangladeshi government and private sector.

Dr. Roman described Dr. Zehr as "one who at one moment is strongly arguing a point and then the next a mother talking fondly of her sons." Dr. Roman adds that "she has the gift of articulation but expressed with a combination of clarity, poise, and passion."
