Dear ACS members

The 2017 Great Lakes Regional Meeting will be held in Fargo, North Dakota on June 27th to 30th 2017. Our theme is Energy and Sustainability and as conference chair, I am inviting you to not only attend (think of this as a save the date) but also offer the chance to be involved either though hosting a symposium or in other capacities. Some relevant links are provided below and I hope you will take the time to check these out. If you have any questions do not hesitate to contact me directly ( I have also attached a save the date flier to this email so feel free to distribute as you see fit.

Thank you

Graeme R. A. Wyllie
