Chemical Group Newsletter

October 7, 2009

To All ISM Chemical Group Members,

The officers for the ISM Chemical Group in 2009-2010 have been chosen.

I am pleased to address you for the first time as your Chair, and to thank all of you who participated in the recent election. In the coming year, I will be joined on the Board by the following individuals:

Vice Chair for Education: Patrick G. Hurd Secretary: Marcio D. DaCosta Treasurer: Roland Harris Director-at-Large: Robert Engel, C.P.M. Chair Emeritus: Glenda S. Cunningham, C.P.M.

I am grateful to Glenda for her leadership over the past few years, and I look forward to working with her and the other members of the ISM Chemical Group Board on projects for the future.

The most immediate project is our 2010 ISM Chemical Group Conference. Although we are a few weeks away from finalizing the program and the Conference brochure, I urge you to mark March 4th and 5th, 2010 on your calendars now for "Economic Recovery  Fact or Fiction?"

We will meet in San Antonio, Texas over those two days to discuss the economy and its impact on our profession with experts, including Joseph Chang of ICIS Chemical Business, Paul Lord of AMR Research, and Norbert Ore of Georgia-Pacific  among others.

There will be plenty of networking opportunities, as well, and a chance to explore San Antonio  home to the Alamo, the Natural Bridge Caverns, and other sites.

You will be sent a link to the Conference brochure as soon as it is ready. In the meantime, thank you for your participation in the ISM Chemical Group.


Paul E. Kane, C.P.M. 2009-2010 ISM Chemical Group Chair
