It is our pleasure to invite you to attend NOBCChE’s 46th Annual Meeting, November 18-21, 2019 at St. Louis Union Station. Each year, the Annual Conference provides opportunities for networking and mentorship between students of all levels and professionals. In addition, the conference provides opportunities for scientific dialogue through technical programming, as well as personal and professional development opportunities for students and early/mid-career professionals. Finally, the conference is a venue for celebrating the history of the organization, as well as the achievements of its members.

 The theme for NOBCChE 2019 is "Gateway to Excellence," as we focus on providing programming that will enable our members to be successful in their present and future endeavors.
