Dear Berkeley Lab Scientific, Engineering & Faculty Staff
The new Professional Research Staff policy (RPM 2.07) that was presented to laboratory staff in two Town Hall Meetings has been well-received. More than 50 employee comments were submitted by the April 1 deadline, most relating to the position titles, and over 200 employees participated in an on-line opinion poll regarding the choice of titles.

We expect that the new RPM 2.07 Professional Research Staff policy will be finalized by April 16th. An announcement will appear in Today at Berkeley Lab when the new policy takes effect.

Thank you for your feedback and suggestions. Your input has been important in helping to shape the new policy and address questions from the S&E community.
