UCAR has launched a new tool to keep the community informed of deadlines and other short-fuse news. UCAR Update will be e-mailed around the middle of each month. The update's Web site includes an archive of each issue and instructions on how to subscribe. The update will be sent automatically to UCAR member and affiliate representatives, international affiliates, and governance bodies (University Relations Committee, Board of Trustees).
