BALLOT -- please vote!
The SSRL Users' Organization Executive Committee (SSRLUO EC) is a voluntary organization which serves as an advisory panel to communicate user needs or concerns to SSRL management and to the SLAC Scientific Policy Committee. More broadly, the SSRLUO EC  helps advocate the role synchrotrons play in the scientific enterprise. 

We are currently soliciting nominations for five general positions in the following disciplines: materials/chemistry (1); structural molecular biology (1), macromolecular crystallography (2), and (1) LCLS**. In addition, we need nominations for a graduate student member of the committee (in any discipline). All members serve a two-year term, with the exception of the person elected Chair who serves a three-year term, and are elected by the SSRL user community per discipline and majority vote. All newly elected members begin their term following the Users' Meeting, October 7-8th.
