The Fermilab Community Advisory Board brings together interested residents from the laboratory’s neighboring communities. Established in fall 2009, the Board grew out of two former task forces, one charged with developing the laboratory’s overall approach to public participation (see video) and one offering specific input on a proposed linear accelerator project.
The Fermilab Community Advisory Board meets every two months and provides ongoing advice and guidance related to the future of the laboratory. The Board gives feedback on proposed new projects, reviews planned construction activities, advises Fermilab on all forms of public participation, and acts as a liaison with local organizations and communities.
All Community Advisory Board meetings take place in Fermilab’s Wilson Hall and are open to the public. The 2019 meeting dates are: Jan. 24, March 28, May 23, July 25, Sept. 26, and Nov. 21. Meetings usually start at 6:30 p.m. and last two hours. Meeting agendas and notes are posted here. For more information, please email Fermilab.
