Welcome to the new NRC Chat platform. NRC Chat is a new tool for engaging in real-time two-way dialogue with you. We plan to do about six months of Chats, usually holding two each month, and then we’ll evaluate it.

During our one-hour Chats, we will have subject matter experts on hand to answer questions about a particular topic. You can check out upcoming dates and topics by clicking the Chat schedule in the menu section, and we will tweet reminders before each session. If you are interested in the topic of the upcoming Chat, you can submit your questions early by sending an email to . Please put CHAT in the subject line.

Please be sure to read the Chat Guidelines before posting. We will moderate comments, but will post them as quickly as possible during the one-hour live Chat. Please post comments unrelated to the Chat topic on the NRC Blog’s Open Forum. If you have comments on how we can improve our new platform or suggestions for topics you would be interested in discussing with us, you can leave them on the NRC Chat blog post.

Welcome again to the new NRC Chat. We look forward to lively and informative discussions with you.
