Postpone the Spring Symposium

posted Mar 17, 2020, 4:09 PM by Great Plains Catalysis   [ updated Mar 17, 2020, 4:10 PM ]

As you are aware, COVID-19 is having a global impact and the WHO and the CDC have instituted recommendations that include social distancing and cancelling conferences and large gatherings. Safety is always GPCS’s highest priority; the GPCS executive committee has decided to postpone the spring symposium to a later date (TBD) in summer 2020. Meanwhile, we remind the GPCS members to renew the membership, if you haven’t done so. Stay safe.
