The Regional Coalition of LANL Communities (RCLC) is holding its monthly board meeting 9-11 a.m., Friday, Sept. 9, at the Ohkay Casino Resort Hotel & Conference Center, 68 New Mexico 291, Suite C/D.

The Regional Coalition has invited Kathy Keith to speak on behalf of the LANL Community Programs Office.
Keith will report on LANL’s present hiring efforts to hire approximately 2,500 new employees in the next four years. The RCLC is eager to engage in future strategies for workforce development as LANL anticipates hiring about 2,500 new employees over the next four years. In July, LANL Director, Charlie McMillan reported 1,135 employees have been hired at the Laboratory since October 2014.
The Manager of Environmental Management from the Los Alamos Field Office, Doug Hintze, will be speaking on the Lifecycle Baseline Cost Estimate, which addresses the full scope and cost of legacy waste cleanup to be completed by LANL. The final presentation will be provided by Acting Director of the Regional Development Corporation (REDI), Val Alonzo, concerning the Regional Economic Development Initiative Conference / Workforce Summit and will provide an update on past and future REDI activities.
In June, RCLC responded to an acquisition process from LANL regarding legacy cleanup. The Regional Coalition received feedback from the Department of Energy and will be learning more about the future of the acquisition on our trip to Washington, DC on September 13. Several of the RCLC members will also be attending the Energy Communities Alliance (ECA) Peer Exchange meeting on September 13 and the National Cleanup Workshop on September 14th and 15th in Alexandria, VA.
