BNL has an "ENVOY PROGRAM" which has the primary purpose of sharing
information about Lab's accomplishments and activities. Employees (and
retirees) are recruited to be "ambassadors" who become well informed about
Lab affairs so that the can talk to family, friends and neighbors about
BNL's main research goals and upcoming events. The program has been
successful and the Lab is seeking employees and retirees to join Envoy team.
