Last year LSI provided one of our Mini-Grants ($250) to a school  science 
teacher in Ohio who wanted funds to run a "Lab Safety Fair".  This  is a sci
fair where all the projects are on lab safety topics.  The 24  high school 
students did eight lab safety projects and then took the  projects to the ju
high schools to teach lab safety to the younger  students.  
Perhaps DCHAS would like to encourage this type of activity on a broader  
basis.  It might be a good topic for an Innovative Projects Grant.  
The write-up/final report of the Lab Safety Fair Mini-Grant Project  appears
in the most recent issue of Speaking of Safety, LSI's newsletter. 
Anyone interest in talking further about this one?  ... Jim

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=E2=80=A6 one in the Spring (due February  1) and one in the Fall (due J
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=E2=80=99s your  chance=E2=80=A6..

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...
