JLab Adopts Event Policy to Avoid Scheduling Conflicts

Subject: Jefferson Lab Events Policy: At-A-Glance Events Calendar

Recently, some scheduling conflicts have occurred with events held at the lab. In taking a closer look at the issue, we discovered some flaws in how and when events are posted to the Jefferson Lab At-A-Glance Events Calendar.

To avoid future conflicts, the lab is adopting a new procedure.

Any lab employee or user (or their designated support staff) planning to host or organize an event at the lab must submit the event to Staff Services. Staff Services will review all proposed events to ensure that the event is appropriate to be included on the Jefferson Lab Events Calendar.

To submit an event, click on the Lab Events/Calendar link on the Jefferson Lab home page. Then click on the link "Submit New Event" at the bottom of the calendar. Provide all available information, and then click on the "Submit Event Info" button at the bottom of the page. This will electronically transmit the proposed event to Staff Services.

If you have any questions or concerns about scheduling conflicts, contact Staff Services directly.

In order to reserve or allocate the appropriate facilities and resources for an event, Staff Services recommends that large events, major meetings and reviews, and events that include users or external guests be submitted to the calendar at least six months to a year in advance of the event date. For last minute or unexpected events, contact Staff Services immediately.

Questions should be directed to Cynthia Lockwood, x7389, or Stephanie Vermeire, x6930, Staff Services.
