Issue No. 26
From the Director
CHESS will be seeking nominations for the openings on the CHESS Users' Executive Committee (UEC) beginning January 19. I can't overstate the importance of getting capable, dedicated scientists to serve on the UEC. During the 2015 CHESS Users' Meeting, CHESS's NSF Program Director Tom Rieker admonished the audience that if CHESS is important to their research programs, they need to make their voices heard at NSF. In October 2015, CHESS's annual NSF site visit panel recommended that CHESS energize its various user communities to ensure that their NSF Program Directors understand the value of CHESS to their research. The UEC plays a key leadership role, helping to organize meetings and speaking for the CHESS user community. I strongly encourage all CHESS users to consider thoughtfully who could best serve as a UEC member.
