The New York Section is very grateful to LSAC for approving the grant of $3000 for National Chemistry Week and the $500, which we used to run 2 science cafes.
We believe that including the 60 year members to be honored is excellent. Since the NY Section always honored the 50 year members with a luncheon, it certainly put that budget in the red by adding the 60. The NY Section will put in for grant money to help defray the cost.
I attended the Leadership Conference
in Baltimore in January 2006. I am sure that the program has changed
over time, but I still would like to recommend the book, "The Leadership
Challenge" by James Kouzes and Barry Posner. It was an excellent
'take home' item and most useful.
