DOE Oak Ridge Environmental Management: Impacts of Cleanup on
Environment, Missions, and Economy.

Jay Mullis
Manager, DOE OREM
Ken Rueter
President & CEO, UCOR

We will use the Zoom Conferencing platform in its normal format. Attendees will be visible unless they choose to turn off their video.

Ready to Network?

8:30 to 9:00 a.m. Friday morning.
Sign up for a Zoom Breakout Room when you register for the meeting!

We are trying something new this Friday by utilizing Zoom's Breakout Rooms. Last Friday morning's poll showed over 75% of ETEC meeting attendees want a networking forum. The topics available are: General Discussion, DOE Discussion, Business Development, Education, and Chat with ETEC Staff/Member Questions.

When you register for the meeting, choose a topic for your breakout room on the registration page. After the meeting, you will be automatically placed in that virtual room with others who are interested in the same topic. The rooms will be open from 8:30-9:00 am. Only those who register and choose a breakout room by 3:00 p.m. on Thursday will be included. Unfortunately, we will not be able to move people around or place new registrants into the rooms on Friday morning.

We look forward to seeing, and talking with you, on Friday morning!
