The 2013 LSLW will be held April 27th and 28th at the Southwest Research Institute in San Antonio, Texas. The workshop will be held in the days preceding the 2013 Spring Meeting so you will have a chance to attend this valuable workshop in addition to the technical sessions at the Spring Meeting. LSLW is an excellent opportunity for your Local Section leadership or future leadership to gain knowledge on how to run an efficient section. The workshop features presentations from local sections, AIChE headquarters, and other successful area groups. Registration is now available and is $65 for AIChE members and $85 for non-members.
The Local Sections Committee, CEOC, and the Board of Directors encourage all Local Sections to participate in this important event. 10 travel grants are available to cover the travel costs of Local Section Leaders to this workshop. Awards criteria and nomination form are available here. Please see the top of the form for availability restrictions.
