Subject: Call For Papers - NORM, Boise, Id. June 17 - 20
Friends, please excuse the cross-posting.  I have been asked to organize a
symposium for the American Chemical Society Northwest Regional Meeting,
(NORM), held on June 17-20, 2007 in Boise, ID.  Our session will be called
"Managing the Chemical Enterprise - Health, Safety and Environmental Issues'
and will feature 20 - 30 minute talks on topics related to the intersection
of chemical use and regulatory compliance.  With that in mind, I am seeking
volunteers to make brief presentations on any of the following topics:


*         Effective approaches for Lab Std. or HazCom implementation

*         Laboratory safety programs

*         MSDS preparation and management

*         Waste management or minimization programs

*         Exposure assessment case studies

*         Personal protective equipment use or mis-use

*         Spill prevention, spill response and emergency preparedness


Or suggest another topic that you think would be interesting to a group of
your safety minded colleagues.   The more practical and real-world oriented
the better.  I would be interested in success stories, horror stories,
lessons learned, best practices or anything related to the above topics.


Please understand that budget is very limited.  No travel compensation or
honoraria can be offered, so presenters who are local to the area or are
interested in the meeting itself are best.


This promises to be an excellent meeting, with symposia on a variety of
interesting topics - see
for complete information.  In addition, this meeting will be held in
conjunction with the annual meeting of the Pacific Division of the American
Association for the Advancement of Science (2007


For those who would like to participate, you should send me a title for your
talk, brief abstract and your contact information.  Send to me directly - do
not reply to the list and do not use the meeting abstract sub mission page.
Your deadline to let me know that you would like to participate is 3/1/2007
(although we have a little time after that to work out the details).


Please let me know if you are interested, or if there are any questions, I
would like to get this wrapped up as soon as possible.  .   - Jim
