Thanks to all that helped make NYSCC's  2020 "Business of Chemistry Day" a success!


Thanks to everyone that was able to join us or sponsor the NYSCC "Business of Chemistry" Lobby Day. It was a productive day with nearly 60 attendees and 40+ legislative visits. Our guest speakers included Dana Rico, Deputy Secretary for Legislative Affairs and Policy, joined by Amanda Lefton, who handles  Environmental Issues; Senator Kevin Parker, Chair of the Energy Committee; and Assembly Minority Leader Will Barclay.
