Our next election for 2018 LLRA officers will be held in December. Electronic ballots and voting via internet will be used. Members who do not have internet connections will be provided paper ballots.

Duties include maintaining the LLRA checking account via a simple Excel spreadsheet; receiving payments in cash or checks for LLRA annual memberships, for monthly luncheons and for the annual picnic; depositing collected money in the LLRA checking account; writing LLRA checks to pay for our monthly luncheon and annual picnic expenses; reimbursing Board Members for miscellaneous LLRA expenses; attending Board meetings which are held two or three times per year; and providing reports as needed to the Board.

The current Chair, Vice-Chair, and Secretary are have indicated that they intend to again volunteer to be candidates for those offices. Anyone else interested in volunteering to be a candidate for any of these offices must contact Julio Diaz at or 925-443-9092,  by November 17 to have your name included on the ballot.

LL Retirees Lunch at the Elks Lodge​
When:  Tuesday, January 9, 2018 from 11:30 AM to 1:30 PM
Where:  Elks Lodge, 940 Larkspur Drive, Livermore, CA 94551

Many of us have heard of the importance of tech transfer throughout our carreers at the Lab.  Come out on Tuesday and hear the latest in tech tranfer and i-Gate.

i-GATE was started in 2010 by the Lab, Sandia, and the city of Livermore to focus on initiatives that advance collaboration, foster innovation, and promote a culture of entrepreneurship in the Tri Valley.  Our speaker is Brandon Cardwell, the executive director of i-GATE and former Senior Analyst at the Lab. In his presentation, Brandon  will describe how the i-GATE partnerships promote efficient transfer of technology from the national labs to the private sector and help start new companies, including some spun out of the Lab. The presentation will also describe new technologies that are being developed.

We are 'breaking in' a new web service for making reservations so if you have any problems/difficulties in making your reservations, please, don't hesitate to "Reply' back to this email or call me at 925-443-9092.

Thank you, and see you at the Elks!
