Last month we had another successful virtual ALS User Meeting. Although many of us miss seeing the user community in person, we also appreciate the wider, more diverse participation that the virtual meeting enables. These meetings require many months of hard work from a handful of very dedicated folks. On behalf of the UEC, I want to give a big thanks and shout-out to the ALS staff that made this meeting run so smoothly. These staff include the administration team: Heidi Clark, Andrea Taylor, Shawna Vila-Flores, Elise Chan, Amanda Espiritu, Angela Setiadi, and Andi Jones; and the communications team: Cindy Lee, Ashley White, Lori Tamura, and Ina Reichel. Their hard work behind the scenes reduces the stress and workload for those of us on the screen. Thank you!
Secondly, if helping shape the user experience at the ALS sounds fun and exciting, consider joining the ALS Users’ Executive Committee. Keep an eye out for future notifications about our fall UEC call for new member nominations.
Finally, we are continuing to push for effective communication to users regarding the upcoming shutdowns. Information about the long-term schedule can be found here. Input on the long-term operating schedule, as well as questions and feedback, may be submitted via this form. You may also contact the UEC or ALS leadership.
