Call for Symposia for the Fall 2017 ACS Meeting in Washington DC

Hello CHED Folks!

Now that “Black Friday” has started 2 weeks before Thanksgiving and the elections are finally over, it is now perfectly safe to propose symposia for the Fall ACS National Meeting to be held in Washington, DC on August 20-24, 2017! 

Abstract deadline for the Spring 2017 ACS Meeting is November 7, 2016

Greetings CHED members,

We hope you are planning to join us in San Francisco this April at the ACS national meeting. Please be aware that the DEADLINE for authors is Monday, November 7 at 11:59 PM EST.

We strongly recommend that you complete your abstract earlier than that since the system becomes very slow on the deadline date. Ideally, you will have your submission in by the last of the month — celebrate Hallowe’en by having a piece of candy and submitting an abstract! That way, if there are any glitches in submission you've got some time to resolve it.

CHED response to the Connelly Essay

Tom Connelly (ACS Executive Director and CEO) posed several questions about safety culture in an ACS Comment in C&ENews in the June 27, 2016 issue.   In September, Rod Bennett (DAC Chair), invited all ACS Technical Divisions to submit responses to these questions.   Cathy Middlecamp forward the request to the CHED Safety Committee.   A sub-group of the Safety Committee crafted a response which was subsequently modified a bit and endorsed by the CHED Executive Committee.  The response is posted here and will more permanently be linked at the Safety Committee website.
