30 years of commitment
Chemical Industry Council of California


The Chemical Industry Council of California (CICC) wishes to acknowledge and thank all of the speakers and panelists [identified by name and title in the agenda] for the professionalism and expertise you brought to your respective presentation.  Your assistance and patience in the advance planning for the Forum, and the many phone calls and e-mails you've endured during the process are greatly appreciated.  Each of you had to travel, several of you cross country, to be with us to present your views.  You obviously made this Forum a priority and we thank you for your support.  


We likewise acknowledge and thank all of the industry cosponsors for helping to make the California Chemical Industry Forum a reality.  Without your assistance we would not have attempted this endeavor.  In particular we wish to thank the previously unsung heroes: Mike Rogge and Gino DiCaro, CMTA; Patti Krebs, IEA; Ted Ladoux and Kathy Lynch, WWPI; Nancy Bruce, SVLG; Scott Anderson, IACCC; Steve Arita, WSPA; Jim Kolstad and Jennifer Gibson, NACD; Christina Foushee, UC Berkeley; Randy Fischback, Dow Chemical, and Vilmarie Rodriguez, Ligand Pharmaceuticals. Your extra efforts are greatly appreciated.  Thanks too, to the University of California Berkeley, for making available, bound copies of the complete report, "Green Chemistry in California: A Framework for Leadership in Chemicals Policy and Innovation."


CICC also wishes to express appreciation to the Team Chemistry folks: Jim Lauria, John Kauke and Nancy Dill.  You have contributed countless hours over the past four and a half months while working hand-and-hand with CICC to perform all the tasks necessary to put on an event of this nature.  CICC could not have accomplished this even t without your assistance. Thank you. 


Thanks also go out to Ed Williams, Ryan Allen, James Helms and Bob Konvalin at American Web Services in Sacramento for your responsiveness in meeting our deadlines; and thanks to the staff of the Radisson Hotel LAX, particularly Teresa Valenzuela and Dawn Welch for helping to make this Forum a success.


Thanks too, to all of you, the Forum attendees.  Your early recognition of the importance of this Forum is appreciated, and will hopefully position your companies, firms and organizations to better address the relevant issue as they unfold.  Special thanks to every one of you, who also had to travel great distance to be with us today.  We hope your extra efforts are rewarded.


Finally, CICC staff wishes to thank our members and most particularly our Board of Directors and Executive Committees for providing the support, encouragement and assistance to complete this undertaking.
