FYI, I am about to board a plane for a visit to Socorro, so won't make the call. Sorry to miss the meeting.
Please feel free to send any questions that you may have for me and I will respond later tonight.
One piece of news is that I was able to secure a good piece of money to support the SAC F2F meeting (part of the reason I am heading to Socorro). I think we should be able to cover hotel accommodations for SAC members for the entire week (we can direct bill). Also, I am planning to have a catered lunch on the Thursday. Depending on how many attend, we might have some leftover slush to help offset costs more.
Also, in case you weren't aware, Rachel Osten was filmed last Friday as part of an APS TV production being put together for ngVLA. Our first movie star!
This is another part of the reason that I am heading to Socorro (filming at the site). It will be shown at the APS meeting next month and be available online.
Will keep you posted once it is finished.
Hope all is going well with the science book organization.
And, please register (and submit an abstract) for the June meeting!
Other discussion concerned the support for SAC members attending f2f, monitoring of book progress, and agenda for at large telecon
