Dear Colleagues,

As I discussed in the 18 April Town Hall, it is prudent to strategically 
plan for the future of NCAR in order to ensure it remains a center of 
excellence with a balanced portfolio of research, community facilities 
and service. Over the next year we will have internal discussions around 
this issue, as well as with the NSF, university and community leaders. 
As one part of that proactive process, I have assembled an ad hoc "Blue 
Ribbon" Advisory Panel of distinguished members of our community. This 
panel will be meeting with the NCAR Executive Committee on 19-20 May.

The panel members are:

Mark Abbott (Oregon State)
Kelvin Droegemeier (Univ. Oklahoma)
Kerry Emanuel (MIT) - Chair
Inez Fung (UC Berkeley)
Bill Hooke (AMS)
Jim Kinter (George Mason Univ., COLA)
V. Ramanathan (Scripps, UC San Diego)
Thomas Zurbuchen (U. Michigan)

A number of you asked after the Town Hall whether there might be an 
opportunity to interact with the panel during their visit. Therefore I 
am very pleased to invite you to a reception to meet informally with the 
panel over a glass of wine and appetizers on Monday 19 May at 5pm in the 
Damon Room at the Mesa Lab. To help with planning, I ask that you RSVP 
to Susan Chavez (chavez at ucar.edu <mailto:chavez at ucar.edu>) by no later 
than 7 May if you are able to attend.

I and the panel look forward to seeing many of you there.

Best regards,
