The objective of this newsletter is to be a valuable tool to communicate with the communities we serve and with our many and varied stakeholders. We recognize that NIST's Engineering Laboratory is but one of a number of players involved in advancing manufacturing and construction. Increasingly, we see ourselves as a node in a larger network of organizations dedicated to these sectors.

We are constantly looking for opportunities to extend our impact through partnerships and collaborations, and encourage you to send us your thoughts and suggestions on how, working together, we may be an even greater influence for beneficial change and growth. I hope that reading this newsletter will motivate you to develop even closer relationships with us. I encourage you to browse our web site and look forward to hearing from you (el [at] (el[at]nist[dot]gov)).
