*** Carolina Chemical Club update ***
After almost 50 years serving members of the chemical industry in Charlotte, the southeast, and beyond, the Carolina Chemical Club closed on December 31, 2012. We regret to inform the membership that due to lack of participation, we can no longer operate the club. We have been unable to obtain any new interested parties in fulfilling the roles on the Board for many years now, and attendance has fallen off to where the club is no longer self-sustaining. With all the changes in our industry in the area, and so many of us covering much wider geographic regions, this development is understandable.
All remaining funds of the club will be distributed in the form of scholarships to the two chemistry programs we have supported over the years, one at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte (UNCC), and one at Winthrop University in Rock Hill, SC.
The Board would like to thank all members, past and present, for making this a wonderful organization to serve our segment, as well as support young people in the area interested in joining the chemical industry. We appreciate your fellowship over the years, and will miss the interactions the club facilitated. We look forward to seeing you all at the annual “Southeastern Chemical Conference” meeting in Myrtle Beach each June. Closing of the Carolina Chemical Club will not impact the SECC. Please go to their website at www.sechemconf.org to keep up with all of the details pertaining to the annual event.
We wish you all safety and prosperity in you careers.
- The Carolina Chemical Club Board
Founded in 1964, the Carolina Chemical Club is a non-profit organization that meets on a regular basis to look at issues pertinent to the chemical and related industries in the Southeast. Our goal is to enhance the safety and industry understanding of our membership as a whole, and to provide a link between the chemical and related industries and collegiate education in the Piedmont Area.
