Berkeley Lab Director Steve Chu's first "brown bag" lunch with employees since he arrived in August is scheduled for next Monday, Jan. 10, from noon to 1 p.m. in Perseverance Hall. Employees are invited to bring their lunches and questions to the table and converse with the Director about Lab matters.
