  • 22A
    • Directors' Review. DanaBalser reported no major issues from the review. ToneyMinter noted that one GBT proposal was changed from priority N to A by the Director.
    • TAC Comments Review by TAC Chair. DanaBalser reported that the TAC chair will review the VLA/VLBA TAC comments and provide feedback by COB on Friday.
    • TAC Reports. DanaBalser reported that a draft of the NRAO TAC report is ready for review. ToneyMinter reported that he plans to start the GBO TAC report today.
    • Disposition Letters. AmyMioduszewski said she will start working on the VLA letters. ToneyMinter has not started yet on the GBT letters but will hopefully be ready on Monday. The plan is to send these out on Monday at 12pm EST.
  • GBT Special Call. ToneyMinter summarized tentative plans for a special GBT call for proposals for large projects with either poor or good weather conditions. The call would go from mid-November to mid-December. Previous special calls were done via the DDT proposal type but this is not possible for proposals with large time requests. The plan would be for ToneyMinter to change the proposal ID from 22B to 22A and for RickLivley to change the deadline date so these proposals do not go through the review process. AnandCrossley suggested we could change these from large to DDT proposals after submission to help with any confusion vis-a-vis metrics. DanaBalser suggested we have authors include a keyword in the title to distinguish this specical call regardless.
  • AGN SRP. We discussed strategies to split the AGN SRP into two panels with difference science. BarryClark suggested high radio luminosity versus low radio luminosity. AllieCosta developed code to plot the fraction of past AGN proposals with a given keyword(s) as a function of semester. Please send her keywords that would fall into the two groups so we can assess if the balance would be reasonable.
  • 22B
    • SRP/TAC Recruitment. AmyMioduszewski reported that she has one invitation out with no answer yet.
  • AOB
