-      $1.74 million has been committed to a combination of the CICILS’ budget for International Year of Pulses and the Members Fund, including Saskatchewan Pulse Growers commitment of $250,000 to CICILS work to co-ordinate activities on the International Year

-      www.iyop.net was launched

-      In total, there were 27 hours of meetings on the international year, over the course of five days.  That is a lot of dedication
