All -

SERMACS 2021 will be held in Birmingham, AL (November 10 ?? 13) this year and will be in person (as of today). Catherine Situma, Laboratory Safety Program Manager at Auburn and I have organized a symposium and welcome abstract submissions from this group. Technically, submission closed today, but the date has been (or will be) extended to 8/16.

Our symposium title is "Risk Management in Teaching and Research Settings". If you are interested in presenting a paper in this broad interest symposium, please let us know (email Catherine or myself off the list). We will have room for the keynote talk and 4 additional speakers. Submitted abstracts may also be entered directly into MAPS at

Additionally, we will be presenting a half-day workshop: Integrating Risk Assessment into Undergraduate Teaching Labs and we welcome you to sign up for this as well. This workshop is free to sign up for during registration. The workshop is currently listed as "Chemical Safety" or something like this and will be on November 12 for 4 hours - not 1 hr. We are working to get the registration page updated.

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 Arnold paraphrased from Konstantin Josef Jire?ek (1854 ?? 1918)
