Dear CLAS collaborators,

I am sure many of you will have (rightly) been concentrating on 
Thanksgiving last week. I just wanted to give you a polite reminder that 
this Friday is the deadline for any comments on both the proposed new 
CLAS charter, and on improvements to the review process.

Best wishes,

Dear CLAS collaborators,

  From last week's meeting, there were three items that potentially
require some action from you:

1. Changes to CLAS charter
2. Proposals for improving Analysis Reviews
3. Next meeting in Catania

Since not everyone in the collaboration was present, I promised to send
round some notes about these.

1. Changes to CLAS charter:
A working party led by Michel Garcon was charged with reviewing the
current collaboration charter and by-laws, with the aim of developing
revisions that would be appropriate for the future operation of the
collaboration. They have produced suggested alterations, and now is the
time for consultation with the whole collaboration. See below for the
link to documentation.

After this initial consultation period, a new charter (and associated
by-laws) will be produced and proposed at the time of the next
collaboration meeting (February). Following a further round of
consultation, a vote will be held at the June collaboration meeting on
whether to adopt the new documents.

As this should be as open a discussion as possible, please send any
comments to me, but also to the clas comments mailing list
[clascomment at jlab.org], so they can be seen by all.*Deadline for
submitted comments: Friday December 5, 2014*

2. Proposals for improving Analysis Reviews:
In order to address perceived problems with current analysis reviews, as
well as to develop a process that will be fit for purpose for 12GeV
running, a working party led by Larry Weinstein has reviewed current
practices and come up with proposals for improvements. Some of the ideas
will be trialled in the Hadron Spectroscopy Working Group for the g12
run group analyses, and we envisage gradually evolving this process.

One key proposal is to produce a guideline for what an analysis note
should contain before being submitted for review, and it is on this that
I would like your input. A draft Analysis Note Outline has been compiled
by the working party, and I would like to receive comments / suggestions
on this. One possible end point may be that there could be a by-law to
the effect that analyses need to conform to this outline.

Again, please send any comments to me and to the clas comments mailing
list [clascomment at jlab.org]. *Deadline for submitted comments: Friday
December 5, 2014*

3. Next meeting in Catania:
The local organising committee for the meeting will need to be able to
estimate the number of participants. Many of you will have filled in the
previous doodle poll that I set up:
If you did not, or you have changed your mind about attending, please
ensure that you do this before *Monday 24 Novemmber*.

The relevant material for the Charter and the Reviews can be found via
the links on the CLAS chair wiki:
under the heading "Issues for discussion"

Best wishes,
