Your PMI CRB Chapter Board is pleased to continue its efforts for the 2017/18 Program Year to enhance and provide value to the membership by offering Monthly Chapter Meetings & Education Sessions. 


4:30 - 5:30 p.m. - "Encouraging Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC) Compliance by Promoting Responsible Science and Chemical Ethics" presented by Dr. Kabrena Rodda from PNNL


5:30 - 6:00 p.m. - Networking and Social Time
6:00 - 6:30 p.m. - Dinner
6:30 - 7:30 p.m. “Incentives for Small Companies’ Adoption of Ethical Codes:  Key Component in the Prevention of Reemergence of Chemical Weapons"  presented by Dr. Kabrena Rodda from PNNL.

Dr. Kabrena Rodda was recently presented a medal by the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) in recognition for her work on The Hague Ethical Guidelines, the Global Chemists Code of Ethics, a chlorine workshop last year, and her body of work over the last two and a half decades to support international chemical nonproliferation efforts and to prevent the re-emergence of chemical weapons.

We are pleased to have Dr.Kabrena Rodda present two important topics at our Monthly Chapter Meeting. At 4:30 p.m. she will discuss the unique technical and policy challenges associated with international chemical issues, challenging the audience to re-think assumptions and promote best practices in coordinating international and interagency activities. Real-world examples are presented and discussed in the context of the covered concepts. At 6:30 p.m. she will present her work on the development and voluntary adoption of ethical codes or guidelines, such as The Hague Ethical Guidelines and The Global Chemists’ Code of Ethics (GCCE), important steps in strengthening international nonproliferation efforts through their potential to impact the intent of the individual by normalizing ethical behavior.

She has 25 years’ experience performing and managing basic and applied research and directing the transition of R&D technology into operational use in national security missions. Since her arrival at the lab, her duties have focused on strategic planning, early integration of user requirements into R&D projects, and translation of policy imperatives into tangible user requirements that drive achievable transitions to operational use.
