    SI ID BADGE RENEWALS: OPS (The Office of Protective Services) has begun to renew expired volunteer badges, and offer them to remote volunteers who completed the background check in order to obtain an si.edu email account. Eligible volunteers will need to submit a signed SI-4008, which Jenna will send to you electronically. When badges are ready, Jenna will pick it up them up at the badge office and distribute it in person in October.
