COVID-19 Update

          Hello CCDG Members and Friends,

  Due to the current status of COVID-19 and CDC recommendations, as well as for the safety of all our members, the CCDG board has decided to postpone our spring dinner lecture, and to cancel our annual Introductory to Liquid Chromatography Course.

Our spring dinner lecture, which was in the late stages of planning, was to be held April 14th at Westwood Tavern. It was to be a joint dinner lecture with the Chicago Mass Spectrometry Discussion Group with Dr. Paul Chiarelli of Loyola University Chicago speaking about ‘Interactions of Microplastics and Emerging Contaminants in Freshwater Ecosystems’. We still intend to host this joint dinner lecture with CMSDG, but have decided to postpone the event until the fall of 2020.

Our Introductory to Liquid Chromatography Course, which was to be held May 12-14, 2020 at Roosevelt University, will be cancelled. We still intent to host our Introduction to Gas Chromatography Course from September 15th through September 17th, 2020, located at Axion Analytical Labs & Training Institute in Chicago. We intend to resume our Introduction to Liquid Chromatography Course at Roosevelt University, Schaumburg in the spring of 2021. We thank you all for your understanding, and we sincerely hope everyone stays safe and healthy at this critical time.
