14 JLab Users Meeting, Newport News, VA, June 06-08, 2011  Overall the users are grateful for every piece of data that has been already taken but worry about future budgets and their impact not only on the users but also on the Lab personnel  The goal is still to get the maximum physics ouput as we make a transition from 6 to 12 GeV with uncertain budgets and timelines. Lab management has been actively engaged in helping.  Management is responsive to the users and communications about space and planning have improved since our last meeting.  Need to keep the user community engaged in the EIC activity as we go to the next long range plan. 19
