If you have any difficulties or questions please contact Brian Glendenning ( or Lori Appel (

The first face to face meeting will be held September 22-23 at the NRAO in Socorro, New Mexico. The nearest airport is in Albuquerque (airport code ABQ), which is about an hour away. Having a rental car is convenient, and probably less expensive than taking the shuttle.

We have a block of hotel rooms at the Socorro Holiday Inn Express. You will have to call directly (+1 576 838-4600) and reserve using a credit card, and the block name "NRAO CUC F2F ".

Each ALMA Executive (ESO, JAO, NAOJ, NRAO) is responsible for paying for the travel of the people they have appointed. If you don't know which organization appointed you please check with Brian Glendenning. Please check with your organization about how you should arrange your travel.

In the case of NRAO members you can have NRAO arrange (and pay for) your travel in advance or get reimbursed afterwards as you prefer. The main thing to be aware of is that to conform with US government regulations your air travel must be booked on a US airline. If you would like NRAO to make the arrangements you can email or go through the BOS visitor registration system, In either case, please state that you are coming to the NRAO CUC meeting, and list Brian Glendenning as your local contact.
