Chemical Consultants Network Website Upgrade

KEITH WING, JOANNE LEONARD


Networking, 5:30 PM; Dinner, 6:30 PM; Talk and Business Session, 7:30 PM



Abstract
Our new website will dramatically enhance premium members’ ability to communicate and access exclusive information. Those members are over 200 strong with an immense collection of qualifications, experience and skills, many outside of the Philadelphia area. What information would be of greatest benefit to chemical consultants and those in transition, that is not being provided by other organizations? 

How can we all benefit from each other? Some of the ideas we’ll propose include forums where ad hoc teams can form and work on projects, a blog, a place to post work opportunities, featuring member stories on the front page, having the ability to have remote speakers give presentations at our monthly meetings via Skype and so on. 

The new upgrade also dramatically enhances member administration and enables convenient online payment. Please join us to share your ideas on how our new site could help to create a practical, working “chemical knowledge microbusiness community”.
