ACS 249th National Meeting, Denver, March 22-26, 2015, Chemistry of Natural Resources
Are you interested in organizing a session at the Denver meeting? In addition to SCHB’s core programming, Resources for Entrepreneurs, True Stories, Best Practices, and Entrepreneurs’ Poster Session, SCHB welcomes your ideas for symposia on topics of interest to the start-up and small business community, or that feature small businesses. Symposia need not be related to the theme. Not sure if you can attend the Denver meeting? No problem; if you organize a session, and cannot attend, we will find somebody to preside at the session. Organizing a session is not difficult and you will gain valuable skills, expand your network, and SCHB will provide you with a full meeting registration.
In order to appear in the C&EN Call for Papers, the session title and organizer must be identified by July 2, 2014. A session may be organized later, but the initial publicity will be lost if the July deadline is not met. Contact Joe Sabol, SCHB Program Chair, to submit your session proposal or if you have any questions.
SCHB on Social Media
Contact Jennifer Maclachlan, SCHB PR Chair  with your member news that you would like shared via the SCHBTwitter or Facebook channels or use the SCHB Linked-In page to start relevant discussions about small chemical businesses.
