Thirty-Five and Going Strong: SCHB Offers Resources and Networking Opportunities for Small Chemical Businesses

Abstract Body: Join SCHB in celebrating our thirty-fifth year! Our mission is to aid in the formation, development and growth of small chemical businesses. We do this by continuously providing relevant programming and social events at ACS national, regional and often local section meetings, for attendees who currently own and operate their own small chemical businesses as well as for those who are considering it. At this 2015 Denver National meeting, SCHB invites you to attend our technical sessions, meet old friends and new connections at our reception in honor of the  Kathryn C. Hach Award for Entrepreneurial Success recipient,  Terry L. Brewer, visit our expo booth and "discuss business," and join us for lunch. After the meeting, stay in touch with SCHB members via Linked-In, Facebook, Twitter and on the ACS Network. At the end of the year, SCHB will sponsor several symposia at Pacifichem. 

Join us at #ACSDenver for our informal breakfast and lunch networking sessions:
