Fostering Innovation. Monday, March 14, 1:00 to 5:00 PM. Keeping pace in an environment of constant change requires continuous innovation. Whether you are in a nonprofit, business, or academic environment, the ability to contribute to the creation of new ideas, new processes, and new approaches is a key to personal and organizational suc- cess. But coming up with new ideas is challenging, and few of us have the tools and skills. This course teaches a proven, systematic process to generate ideas. You will gain understanding and tools to help you tap into your own innovation style and learn how to stimulate innova- tive thinking among team members and colleagues. Coaching & Feedback. Tuesday, March 15, 8:00 AM to noon. Most managers will tell you that coaching is important, and yet they avoid actually coaching anyone. Some who try find it harder than expected. The reason? Most managers lack the skills and confidence to be effective in the coaching role. But good coaching is central to your success as a leader and to the success of your team members, employees, and volun- teers on ACS committees. Coaching will help you increase performance, expand your team's capabilities, and improve relationships and morale. This course provides leaders with a proven process, practical tools, and a hands-on opportu- nity to coach volunteers and employees more effectively. Strategic Planning. Tuesday, March 15, 1:00 to 5:00 PM. Among the respon- sibilities of a leader, none is more critical than setting goals and direction. Whether you are leading at the level of a local section, division, or national committee, your members look to you to establish the strategic plan that will guide the group's activities. This course will help you improve your understand- ing of the planning process while giving you the opportunity to start developing a strategic plan. EXHIBITOR SPONSORED WORKSHOPS EXHIBITING COMPANIES will host free education sessions for attendees to introduce new products and ser- vices, build skills with specific tools and techniques, and highlight applica- tions for existing instrumentation. Visit to register for workshops. Sunday, March 13 Flow Chemistry Seminar. Sponsor: Thales Nano Nanotechnology, 3:30 to 6:00 PM, SDCC, Room 12. Join our seminar for a glimpse into the latest advances in continuous-flow reactor technology, and see how it can benefit your chemistry. Information is also avail- able at the ThalesNano booth, #1121. Monday, March 14 Innovative Technologies To Improve Your Students' Learning Experi- ence. Sponsor: McGraw-Hill Educa- tion, 9:30 AM to noon, SDCC, Room 15B. 9:30 to 10:30 AM — Adaptive Learn- ing To Help Prepare & Engage Your Stu- dents for Success. Adaptive technology is at the forefront of the evolution of digital teaching, allowing instructors to teach and students to learn in ways never before possible. But what does this really mean? And how can you make it work for you and your students? Get answers to these questions from instructors who have years of experience using adaptive technology, including SmartBook and LearnSmart Prep. 11:00 AM to noon — Revolutionizing the Lab Experience: Introducing Learn- Smart Labs for General Chemistry. Learn- Smart Labs provides an adaptive, inter- active, personalized lab experience that encourages students to theorize and experiment like scientists do. In the real- istic LearnSmart Labs environment, stu- dents can practice the scientific method, safely develop and test hypotheses, and think critically about their findings before ever setting foot in a physical lab. Waters Technical Workshops. Spon- sor: Waters, 9:30 AM to noon, SDCC, Exhibit Halls B/C, Exhibitor Workshop Room 2. Join Waters for two educa- tional workshops designed to help improve laboratory effectiveness in your organization. 9:30 to 10:30 AM — Transforming Sample Preparation. Waters has devel- oped a new, water-wettable, reversed- phase sorbent and an easy-to-use, streamlined approach that produces high recoveries, improved sample flow capabilities, and reduced matrix effects. Don't miss this discussion on a new, novel sorbent for small-molecule sample preparation that is easier to use and produces cleaner samples in less time with fewer steps. 10:30 to 11:30 AM — Empower- ing Solutions. We will explore the new features of Empower 3 FR3 in this ses- sion. Topics covered will include mass spectrometric peak tracking, new peak labeling options, new component sum- mary reporting options, location fields, new custom field capabilities, Waters's data manager, and qualification and per- formance enhancements. CAS Solutions. Sponsor: CAS, 9:30 AM to 3 PM, SDCC, Exhibit Halls B/C, Exhibitor Workshop Room 1. Visit CAS in the Exhibitor Workshop to learn more about our products and solutions. ACS on Campus. Sponsor: ACS Store, 12:30 to 3 PM, SDCC, Room 15B. Learn from ACS editors and experts in the field about how to maximize your research, get published, and build the skills you need to gain that competitive edge for your career. The event is free, including complimentary food, drinks, and giveaways. The event is open to undergraduates, graduate students, researchers, faculty, and librarians. Solutions for Innovation: From Com- position to Structure. Sponsor: JEOL USA, 12:30 to 3:00 PM, SDCC, Exhibit Halls B/C, Exhibitor Workshop Room 2. In your element: SEM/EDS. Find your formula: ambient ionization mass spec- trometry. Verify your structure: NMR. Learn how the latest innovations from JEOL integrate to enhance your science. Seamless Integration of 2-D & 3-D SAR To Guide MultiParameter Opti- mization. Sponsor: Optibrium, 3:30 to 6:00 PM, SDCC, Room 15B. In this hands-on workshop, we will explore how the combination of two-dimensional structure-activity relationships (SARs) with 3-D structure-based design can be used to guide the optimization of high- quality compounds. Practical examples will illustrate how analyses such as activity-cliff detection and matched molecular pair analysis in StarDrop's Card View system can be linked with a 3-D view of a compound binding to a therapeutic target. We will also use the SeeSAR software platform to demon- strate how 2-D quantitative structure- activity relationship (QSAR) models of S O C I A L & E D U C AT I O N A L E V E N T S
