The ALS Users Executive Committee (UEC) represents the interests of all students, post-docs and scientists who perform research at the ALS. We meet 3-4 times a year for a half-day meeting at which we discuss topics relevant to the ALS user community. The UEC provides a channel of communication between the ALS user community and ALS management, conveying the concerns and needs of the user community to management, and providing a means for management to update users on current and future plans for the facility. The UEC also facilitates communication between the ALS and other synchrotrons, and between users and federal funding agencies. With the support of the ALS staff, the UEC organizes and runs the annual ALS Users' Meeting, held each Fall at LBNL. Members are elected annually by ALS users and serve three year terms.
