    From the Desk of the Executive Director—Advocacy Report

    It has been almost two years since I’ve joined the Chemistry Council of New Jersey.

When I took over as executive director, I committed to keep the high quality standards and level of advocacy you have come to expect from the Council. I am glad we continue this tradition, and have actively represented your interests before the Legislature and regulatory bodies.

    Chemical Sector Emergency Preparedness Tabletop Exercise After Action Report

    The American Chemistry Council (ACC)-sponsored Chemical Sector Emergency Preparedness Tabletop Exercise (TTX) provided a forum to facilitate discussion and document roles, responsibilities, processes, protocols, and systems used to support an effective public-private response to emerging all-hazard threats and incidents impacting the Chemical Sector. The TTX was meant to validate and provide feedback to enhance the recently developed draft Playbook for an Effective All-Hazards Chemical Sector Response (the “Playbook”). As a joint publication of the U.S. Department of Homeland (DHS) and the Chemical Sector Coordinating Council (CSCC),1 the Playbook is intended to provide a standard operating procedure to assist the Chemical Sector in preparing for, responding to, and recovering from all-hazards emergency events.
