ARL Senior Retreat Completed


January 27, 2006

Senior ARL staff from all ARL Divisions gathered in Silver Spring on January 25-27, to discuss two issues of major importance at this time:

— how to optimize the process by which we line up behind the recommendations of the ARL Review Team (led, last year, by Jim Meagher of ESRL), and

— how best to manage ARL while a new ARL Director is sought and appointed.

About 25 people attended for enthusiastic discussion. It was agreed that ARL programs are well described in the three program themes that correspond to the Review Team’s conclusions – Air Quality, Climate, and Dispersion. Team leaders are now in place for the first two of these. A lead for the dispersion program has yet to be identified.
