The following information is provided for any members of the general public who may be in attendance:

This meeting is being held to gather information to help the committee in its charge. This committee will examine the information and material obtained during this, and other public meetings, in an effort to inform its work. Although opinions may be stated and lively discussion may ensue, no conclusions are being drawn nor will recommendations be made. Observers who draw conclusions about the committee’s work based on this meeting’s discussions will be doing so prematurely.
Furthermore, individual committee members often engage in discussion and questioning for the specific purpose of probing an issue and sharpening an argument. The comments of any given committee member may not necessarily reflect the position he or she may actually hold on the subject under discussion, to say nothing of that person’s future position as it may evolve in the course of the project. Any inference about an individual’s position are therefore also premature.

RECORDING OF THE MEETING

This meeting will be recorded by the NRC. Please be aware that by attending the meeting, you consent to your voice being recorded for use by the NRC for the purpose of note-taking. This recording will not be publicly released, shared outside of the NRC, or used for other public purposes.

NOTES FOR PRESENTERS

If your presentation contains unpublished data, ITAR controlled and/or other sensitive information, please be aware that the open sessions at the meeting may be recorded and/or webcast. Presentation materials given to the committee may be posted on a publicly accessible website. Please edit your presentations accordingly.

Mac users should assume that their presentation will be displayed via one of the NRC’s PCs. If your presentation is graphics heavy and best displayed via your own laptop, you should also bring a plain-vanilla pdf version of your presentation with you.
