I would like to nominate myself for the role of Mid-Continent Deputy Regional Coordinator. Sandia National Laboratories (Sandia) benefits greatly from participation in FLC, and I would love the opportunity to increase our engagement in this capacity.
My work at the Labs is closely aligned with the goals and focus of FLC.
