Please join us for a two-day IACC Strategic Planning Workshop that will take place on Monday, October 29th and Tuesday October 30th , 2012 from 9:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. ET at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington, DC. Onsite registration will begin at 8:00 a.m.
The Strategic Planning Workshop will take place over two days. Issues related to Services Research and Policy will be discussed on the first day, Monday, October 29th, and issues related to Basic and Translational Research will be discussed on the second day, Tuesday, October 30th. A full agenda and meeting materials will be posted on the IACC website prior to the workshop.
Sessions for public comment on the material presented during the workshop will be held on both days. Those wishing to provide oral public comment in person at the workshop must sign up for oral comment at the check-in desk on the day of the workshop. Due to scheduling constraints, oral comments will be limited to two minutes per person and will be on a first-come, first-served basis. If slots for the oral public comment sessions are full, each individual and/or organization will only be allowed to provide oral comment during one of the workshop days in order to provide an opportunity for as many individuals/organizations as possible to participate. Those persons who are not able to make oral comments due to the time constraints, and those preferring to comment in written form, may submit their written comments pertaining to the material presented at the workshop via email to IACCpublicinquiries@mail.nih.gov through Friday, November 2nd.
All written comments will become part of the public record.
