Subject: CHAS Web site updates

I've had a chance to update the CHAS web site at
with three new items:

1. The CHAS workshop schedule for the Salt Lake City national meetings  

next March 20 and 21. The workshops being offered are:
- Laboratory Waste Management Workshop
- Lab Safety Seminar
- How to be a More Effective Chemical Hygiene Officer
- Reactive Chemical Management for Laboratories

2. News on the ACS Divisional Innovative Project grants program
Do you have a great idea for a Division activity that needs funding?   

There are TWO opportunities to apply for Innovative Project grants for  

2009=85 one in the Spring (due February 1) and one in the Fall (due July 
1).  There is a limit of $7500 per grant, up to two totaling no more  
than $12,500 for each Division.

Want to stage a Webinar?  Have a great idea for a publication  
benefiting the Division?  Need materials for a National Chemical Week  

event?  Would you like to establish a scholarship for a Safety  
Undergraduate student?  Want to put on an event at a Regional  
meeting?  Here=92s your chance=85..

3. Survey results
A summary of the results of the membership survey we recently  
completed. I haven't had a chance to throughly review the results and  

comments yet, but expect to develop a summary of the responses and  
plan of action based on them early in 2009.

Happy Holidays to everyone in CHAS! Stay tuned for an exciting 2009...
