New ARM User Executive Committee Members Selected

Published: 26 January 2023

After counting your votes, the Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) user facility’s User Executive Committee (UEC) has welcomed eight new members picked to represent you.

During the election period from October 20 to November 9, 2022, a record 359 of you cast votes virtually. Nineteen candidates appeared on the ballot. Thank you to all ARM users who ran and voted in the election.

New members, whose terms began January 1, 2023, are listed below with their home institutions and the science themes they will represent on the UEC. Eight members recently rolled off the committee after serving two- to four-year terms.

The UEC is charged with providing objective, timely feedback to ARM leadership regarding the user experience. Reporting to ARM Director Jim Mather, the UEC serves as the official voice of the user community in its interactions with ARM management.

Typically, voters select one early career representative to serve a two-year term. However, three of the new members are early career scientists, so there is not a specific early career representative this time. As a result, all eight new members are eligible to serve four-year terms.
