The Friends of ORNL (FORNL) is a non-profit organization of persons interested in fostering the scientific goals of the OAK RIDGE NATIONAL LABORATORY (ORNL), Oak Ridge, TN, USA.

We are scientists and engineers, as well as individuals from varied backgrounds, who believe we can increase the nation's technological awareness by providing information to teachers, students, and the general public.

FORNL is collecting dues for the 2017 calendar year; the annual dues for 2017 are $20. If you want to gamble that you will live 10 years or more, consider a life membership at $200 and in the future, forget about whether you have paid.  An up-to-date list of members and their dues status will be available for viewing at the meeting.  Dues can be paid at a meeting or sent to the FORNL Treasurer (payable to FORNL, Vinod Sikka, Treasurer); or sent to: Vinod Sikka, 115 Dansworth Lane, Oak Ridge, TN 37830).

We are accepting requests for ORNL visitors’ badges from those who have paid their 2017 dues (or who are life members).  To request a visitors’ badge, e-mail Bob Hightower at hightowerjr@comcast.net with your full name (as it appears on your driver license) and a declaration that you are a US citizen.
