SOCMA's 90th Annual Dinner in New YorkSOCMA’s Annual Dinner is a time for industry leaders to come together with their VIP customers and colleagues to celebrate the past year’s successes and the New Year ahead.  Held in December in New York City for 90 years, the evening provides networking, excellent food, SOCMA’s donation to the ACS Scholars Program and an awards ceremony honoring winners of SOCMA’s Performance Improvement Awards.  The Awards recognizes facilities’ commitment toward continuous improvement, outstanding EHS&S performance, and educational outreach through the ChemStewards® Program.  The evening ends with a performance by an entertaining performer.

Tuesday morning following the Annual Dinner, there will be a special breakfast session with Peter J. Tanous, President of Lepercq Lynx Investment Advisory, LLC. Mr. Tanous will discuss the global economy and the effects of the federal debt and deficit.

Craig Karges is truly extraordinary! He combines the art of magic with the science of psychology and the power of intuition to create the impression that nothing is impossible. Tables float, minds are read, metal bends and your imagination is challenged because you won’t believe your eyes!
