Seeking New Members

The Department of Energy’s Fermilab seeks local citizens interested in participating in the future of the laboratory to join the ranks of its Community Advisory Board.

The Community Advisory Board, established in the fall of 2009, meets six times a year on a Thursday evening. Members comment and offer feedback on proposed new projects, offer insight on potential community concerns related to new endeavors, provide guidance on Fermilab’s public participation, and act as a liaison with local organizations and communities.

The board consists of a rotating group of individuals from the communities surrounding the laboratory and the greater Chicago region. Board members represent many different walks of life, and are affiliated with many different local organizations.

With several large projects in the works, including the laboratory’s flagship international Long-Baseline Neutrino Facility and the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment, the Community Advisory Board’s input is more important than ever. Fermilab is looking for several new members to accept two-year terms on the board.

If you would like to be considered for the Fermilab Community Advisory Board, please fill out the questionnaire below.

Community members are invited to nominate others for the CAB. Please send nominations with contact information to [email protected]. Members of the Office of Communication staff will follow up on all nominations.
