The Spring marks the signature event for the AIChE Safety and Health DivisionThe AIChE Global Congress on Process Safety.  This year's conference will take place March 26-30 in San Antonio, TX at the Henry Gonzales Convention Center.

There are several ways for you to get learn more about the Safety and Health Division while you attend the conference:

 ·  Learn about cutting edge topics in process safety by attending the conference technical sessions

o   Did you know ... that the Loss Prevention Symposium AND the Process Plant Safety Symposium are both sponsored by the Safety & Health Division?

o   During breaks in the conference be sure to stop in to the Safety & Health Division booth to learn about opportunities for you to participate in the Division

 ·   Help shape the future of the Division by attending the S&H Division Annual Meeting

o   The Division meeting will be held March 28, starting at 5 PM at the conference venue – all S&H Division Members are welcome

·    Network with process safety leaders from around the world in a fun atmosphere at the S&H Division Dinner

o   Our Guest Speaker for the evening will be Rachel Meidl of the US DOT-Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration.

o  The Walton/Miller Award will be presented at the dinner in recognition of outstanding achievements in Loss Prevention, Safety, and Health.

·     Outreach - If you know a YP, ask them to look for a S&H Division officer at the YP mixer on Sunday evening and learn how the YP's can get involved in the Division.

You can sign up for these events online when you register for the conference or call AIChE at 1-800-242-4363 or 203-702-7660 (outside of U. S.).   Be sure to sign up soon as tickets to the S&H Division Dinner often sell out.  Also, we encourage you to consider bringing a colleague who has never attended these Division events before – this is one of the best ways to build passion for process safety throughout the industry.

See you in San Antonio!
