    Merle Rivas and Larry Cardman have been promoted to top positions at Jefferson Lab. Rivas was promoted from her position as Employee Relations Manager to Human Resources and Services Director. After an extensive national search, Cardman was selected to replace John Domingo, who is stepping down December 31, 1996, as Associate Director of Physics.

    Cardman came to Jefferson Lab in 1989-90 on a sabbatical leave from the University of Illinois. He joined the Laboratory permanently in 1993 as the Deputy Associate Director for Physics, and has assisted Domingo in his responsibilities for building and equipping the three experimental halls. The associate director plays a vital role in assuring an effective and productive nuclear physics program. He is the key interface between the laboratory and the hundreds of users who conduct there research in the experimental halls.

    Rivas' new duties include planning and directing all personnel related policies and programs, including employee recognition programs and conference services. Rivas, who began at Jefferson Lab in August 1995, will also serve as a consultant to senior Laboratory management on a broad range of issues that have an impact on the quality of work life.
