Letter from NSSA to DOE

This letter was submitted to Dr. Cherry A. Murray Director or Office of Science, US DOE. The letter expresses concern over the decline in the number of neutron facilities and urges DOE to prioritize plans for the Second Target Station at SNS and to fully utilize the existing beam ports at both SNS and HFIR. NSSA also offers its support and expertise in ongoing and future discussions related to DOE neutron scattering facilities.

Congratulations New Executive Committee Members

It is our pleasure to announce the results of our recent election, in which three NSSA Executive Committee positions came to term. Congratulations and welcome to our new NSSA executive members:

Prof. Patrick Woodward (Ohio State) – Vice-President (4 year term)
Dr. Katharine Page (ORNL) – Secretary (4 year term)
Dr. Mike Crawford (DuPont) – Treasurer (2 year term)

We would like to thank our members who put themselves forward for election. Standing for election can be a somewhat thankless task, but the well-being of our society depends critically on our leading members of doing so. We greatly appreciate the efforts and service which these members have offered our society.

We thank our outgoing executive members, Julie Borchers (Vice-President) and Chris Leighton (Secretary) for all their efforts, hard work, and contributions on our behalf.

ACNS a Great Success!
