Re: CHAS programming at SERMACS

All - If you are attending the Southeastern Regional Meeting (SERMACS) this fall, please consider attending the Friday morning symposium organized by Mark Lassiter and myself, "Learning Laboratory Safety Through Storytelling" - Sponsored by CHAS. Bob Hill is our Keynote speaker and we hope to have an audience engaging panel discussion after his concluding talk.

SERMACS wil be held November 7 to 11 in Charlotte, NC.

November 10th, 2017
Sheraton Charlotte Hotel

Learning Laboratory Safety Through Storytelling (Oral)
M. Lassiter, S. B. Sigmann, Organizers, Presiding

9:00 Introductory Remarks.
9:05 . The story of chemical safety in the 20th century. R. Stuart
9:25 . The unique training opportunity of story. M. Lassiter
9:45 . How does an EHS professional engage their audience?. M.B. Koza
10:05 . Using learning points to create a sound safety baseline. K.W. Kretchman
10:40 . A series of unfortunate events: A personal story. S.B. Sigmann

11:40 Panel Discussion.

I have also organized a workshop "Improving Chemical Safety in Schools" on Friday aimed primarily as Secondary Ed folks (teachers, administrators, museums, etc.), but anyone can register. We have a cap set at 25 due to room size (same room as the morning session) and there is a $5 registration fee. Lunch is included. This 2 hour workshop is co-sponsored by CHAS, CCS, and the ACS High School Office.

Thanks and let me know if you have any questions about either event.

We, the willing, led by the unknowing, are doing the impossible for the ungrateful. We have done so much, for so long, with so little, we are now qualified to do everything with nothing. Teresa Arnoldparaphrased from Konstantin Josef Jire€?ek (1854 ‰?? 1918)
