Subject: Reception in Philadelphia Date: Tue, 20 Jan 2004 10:05:00 -0500 As many of you know, I have been planning a Wine & Cheese reception in Philadelphia in connection with the ACS National Meeting, August 22-26, 2004. Because of some contacts I have, I have been able to secure any of three ideal sites - the restored Water Works site (the first water works in the US, beautifully restored), Lloyd Hall (the City of Philadelphia owned boathouse on boathouse row), or the Atwater Kent Museum, the City's official museum. I have been able to raise $600 on my own towards this event, but am now appealing to you and your organizations for additional funds. My plan is to have a poster session honoring the history of chemical safety (perhaps including some of our own members, past and present as part of this), and would hate to have to make this a bare-bones event. My goal is to raise $3000 for this event; I have contacted the ACS Office of Meetings & Expositions, which has an individual with the responsibility of putting together events and sponsors (nothing from them), I have contacted three senior executives from Rohm & Haas (headquartered in Philadelphia - no response), and joined the Philadelphia Meeting Organizing Committee (hence volunteering for organizing committee booth duty), all to no avail. Can anyone help? Would your organization like to be an honored sponsor of this reception?? I promise excellent publicity - this event will be part of the ACS registration process (hopefully free to the first 500 registrants, with free tickets to sponsors). THANKS! Please let me know.....
