Envirolab to Attend the 2017 RACI Centenary Congress in Melbourne
We are attending this week the 2017 RACI Centenary Congress in Melbourne at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.
To mark its centennial, the Congress is being held on the 23-28 July under the theme: "Chemistry addressing sustainable development and other challenges of the 2020s." To encompass the theme, the event will bring together several thousand delegates from across the breadth of the chemical sciences and technologies to celebrate the contributions that chemistry has made to social, economic and intellectual advancement over the past century, as well as look forward to the challenges and opportunities that await in the century ahead.
Our team from Envirolab attending the Congress includes (pictured from left to right) Todd Lee, Laboratory Manager (Perth); Nancy Zhang, Assistant Laboratory Manager (Sydney); Tania Notaras, Group Managing Director; Simon Mills, Group R&D Manager; David Springer, General Manager and Pamela Adams, Laboratory Manager (Melbourne).
Founded in 1917, the RACI is the qualifying body in Australia for professional chemists and a learned society promoting the science and practice of chemistry. The RACI today represents 4,500 members and continues to be dedicated to the professional advancement of chemistry in the broadest context to the betterment of humanity. Members work across all Australian industrial sectors, in food and hygiene; climate and environment; energy and resources; analytical and forensic; health and biotechnology; universities and research institutes; education and the public service.
Envirolab plays a significant part in supporting RACI as demonstrated by Managing Director, Tania Notaras’ role in 2015-2017 as President-Elect in the RACI NSW Branch and election to the RACI Board as an Ordinary Board Member. Recently in 2017, Tania took over as President of the RACI NSW Branch.
