Next Tuesday, we're heading to Boise, Idaho for the 36th Annual NAOSMM Conference.
The National Association of Scientific Materials Managers (NAOSMM for short and pronounced Nay-O-Sum) is:
- A group of approximately 500 individuals involved in purchasing, receiving, warehousing, distribution, and inventory control of chemicals, pharmaceuticals, glassware and plasticware, instruments and special services in research, teaching, and R & D fields.
- We work in academia, industry or research.
- We hold positions such as storeroom managers, laboratory managers, teaching lab coordinators, purchasing or procurement personnel, and business managers.
Members include representatives from universities, colleges, manufacturers, research laboratories, and pharmaceutical companies. We all have one thing in common: we have unique questions for which we seek workable answers. NAOSMM allows us to exchange ideas, information, contacts, and leads with people who understand our challenges and can offer solutions.
We're looking forward to seeing all of our current friends and making some new ones while we're in Boise - if you're going to the NAOSMM conference, please stop by to see our new color HPLC Columns.
