The ACS Division of Small Chemical Businesses SCHB provides entrepreneurial programming and
resources at ACS national and regional meetings. SCHB reaches out to its members who currently
own and operate businesses in the chemical and related sectors, as well as to others who are 
considering their own startup. In 2012, SCHB partnered with ACS local sections to bring 
entrepreneurial programming to local section meetings. At the ACS 246th national meeting in

Here's a previously unpublished blog post from October 2012 which never made it's way out of *Draft Mode* until I came across it today while working on my newsletter!

The 38th Northeast Regional Meeting (NERM) of the American Chemical Society hosted by the Rochester, NY Local Section September 30-October 3 2012, was my first opportunity to organize and facilitate three half day technical sessions for the ACS Division of Small Chemical Businesses. Earlier this year I organized  a social media symposium and SCI-MIX for SCHB at the Fall National Meeting and participated as a speaker in the True Stories of Success of Chemical Entrepreneurs in San Diego at the Spring National Meeting.
