The Committee on Economic and Professional Affairs (CEPA) identifies and monitors the needs of the chemical workforce and develops, coordinates, and oversees the implementation of programs and activities to enhance the economic and professional status of chemical professionals.

CEPA Can Help Members, 12/04With record high unemployment for the third year in a row, CEPA is striving to do all it can to help members through these tough economic times.

Thus, I would like to better acquaint our members with CEPA and several exciting new programs and valuable career services.
