From the Laboratory

Beginning today, Fermilab Office of Communication is pleased to share Particles, a new monthly newsletter from Fermilab senior management that covers key projects and initiatives and the “behind-the-scenes” support critical to our success. The June issue of Particles is available now on News at Work.

For many Americans, June 19, or Juneteenth, commemorates the end of slavery in the United States. In recognizing Juneteenth as a day of significance, we the senior leadership will exercise the choice to take a personal day of leave from work on Friday, June 18, or Monday, June 21, to reflect on the past, educate ourselves and energize our commitment to influence organizational change in the present.

The Fermilab particle accelerator complex set a record beam power earlier this year, thanks to the high-quality work of numerous teams and individuals. The successful completion of the NuMI 2020 shutdown work prepared the target facility for this achievement.

Fermilab enters a new era of facility management this week as the Centralized Facility Management program officially kicks off. Centralized Facility Management (CFM) brings the management of all* conventional facilities under one (virtual) roof.
