The Fermilab Users Executive Committee is an organization of scientists and engineers currently engaged in advancing our understanding of the nature of matter and energy. These Users anticipate needing significant resources from the Laboratory to conduct basic research in particle physics, astrophysics, the development of accelerators and their inter-relationship. Its purpose is to provide a forum for discussion of scientific and administrative matters relevant to the organization and functions of the Laboratory. In particular, it should play an important advisory role in determining the relationship of outside Users to the Laboratory and the support they will have in implementing their experimental programs.
One of our central goals is to strengthen ties with our representatives in Congress.
We want to start a dialog/build a relationship with them, and to
let them know how funding for general science effects the constituents at all levels
in their districts by feeding into education, training of students, and other fields that our
students enter upon graduation.
