Subject: ACS Midwest Regional Meeting
Earlier this week I discovered that the above meeting will be held on my
campus Nov 5-7, 2003. The agenda does not include any safety related
sessions. I suspect this is typical for regional meetings and is most
likely due to the fact that no one has proposed a safety session when
the planning for these meetings takes place. As a result, I am taking a
band aid approach to the meeting this November. My staff and I will be
preparing several posters for the Sci-Mix poster session. I would like
to also encourage anyone who is interested in visiting Columbia,
Missouri to likewise submit posters for this meeting (see announcement
at, which must be done by Sept.


In addition, I discovered that next year's ACS Midwest Regional Meeting
will be held at Kansas State U. I have already made an initial contact
to see if we can get a safety session on that agenda.


I know some DivCHAS members have organized safety symposia and/or
posters for regional and local ACS meetings. I am interested in any
experiences you have had about what worked well and what did not.


Thanks in advance for any suggestions you have.
