TOUR AND DINNER MEETING This months meeting will hopefully appeal to a wide range of members interests not just those interested in quality (which we obviously all are) but also those interested in sciences and manufacturing. Join us on October 18 as we meet in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, for a tour of the enzyme production facility of DuPont Industrial Biosciences (formerly Genencor). Through a unique combination of agricultural, biotechnology, chemical and material science, DuPont Industrial Biosciences focuses on providing bio-based solutions to meet the needs of customers across a wide range of industries - from brewing to biofuels to animal nutrition to apparel - to improve products and make processes more sustainable. Following the tour, we will be having dinner at the The Hotel at Kirkwood Center, a new boutique hotel and events center which is both a teaching facility and a fully functioning hotel / restaurant / events center. After dinner, Cassidy Whitmore of DuPont Industrial Biosciences will be speaking more about what they make, how they make it, and some of the quality systems they have in the facility (ISO 9001, HACCP, and Organic certifications). So, join us for an evening of information, networking, and camaraderie. We look forward to seeing you there!
