New Contributor III
0 0 96

For those thinking about or planning on attending the ACS Fall National Meeting in Boston, MA (August 19-23, 2018), here is the preliminary program for CHAS events.  A reminder that, due to the scheduling of the Presidential Symposium on Sunday (to accommodate President Dorhout’s schedule), the CHAS Business meeting {OPEN!} and Awards ceremony will be held on Monday August 20th as opposed to their traditional scheduling on Sunday.   Locations have not been officially announced yet, but we have requested co-location of the various events to minimize travel between sessions.

We hope to see you all there!
