After the first one in New Orleans – if the Members are wanting it – Tim and I will consider a Webinar format – So if anyone is interested in the Webinar format – chime in – so we can make the appropriate adaptations. We would target a 2 hour webinar – so it will not be as intensive as an on-site version. But would like the feedback.

Any chance this could be made into a webinar/simulcast so it could be held at the meeting but viewed remotely if one registered for it? I have two children and travel that far away is just not something that's going to happen--but I would love to 'attend' even on a Saturday....
Thanks for considering this--

If you were to attend the conference, would you consider also attending this workshop? This is not a commitment on your part, rather I am trying to estimate the interest among our members
Strategies for Hazard Communication in the Laboratory – Academic and Industrial
This is a half day workshop to provide those responsible for the implementation of Hazard Communication in their work environment with information related to recent changes in OHSA’s Hazard Communication Standard. These recent changes, March 26, 2012, adopted several aspects related to global harmonization of precautionary warnings. The revised standard includes: revised criteria for classification of chemical hazards, new labeling provisions, a specified format for safety data sheets, revisions to definitions, and new training requirements. The new labeling and data sheets require the use of standardized signal words, pictograms, hazard statements and precautionary statements. The workshop will focus on the changes and requirements of the new rule as well as provide tips and tools for the implementation of the new requirements. The workshop is designed for the practioner that is responsible for translating the standard to individuals that work in teaching, research or industrial laboratories.

With several organizations getting back into the swing of things it is time to begin planning the Spring ACS Meeting. It will be held in New Orleans – April 7-13.
Abstract Submissions are now open for that meeting.
Timothy Black and I are chairing a symposium on the Hazard Communication Standard – On March 26 of 2012 – OHSA issued the new standard that reflect the changes associated with the implementation of global harmonization. We are looking for papers related to the changes that organizations will have to implement, and how they are doing the new implementation.
If you are interested please contact me or Tim (tblack01**At_Symbol_Here**drury.edu).
