Hi, I'm a senior Lab Coordinator for the general chemistry instructional labs program and am looking to network with other lab managers and coordinators at more specifically at the university level (but all in the educational field are welcome to respond). I've been in this field for 7 years, but haven't until recently started reaching out to others who are in similar areas as me. I'm finding that the usual resources and groups for safety, lab prep, organization of materials, delivery of materials to the labs, etc. have not necessarily been focused on what works in instructional labs (ones with a different experiment each week, per each course, facilitated by TAs), and I am looking to bounce ideas off others in my position. 


Can anyone point me in the right direction?
