Meet Detroit's CERM Planning Team

Come say hi to us at CERM!

In the area...

The Detroit Local Section is excited to host CERM 2023. Hopefully you have read about the programs offered during our meeting, "Sustainability, the Great Lakes, and Chemistry for the Future" (if you have not - check them out). Did you know that the Detroit Section is one of the few ACS Local Sections with an international border? Did you know that the Detroit Section is over one hundred years old and the surrounding area is steeped in rich history? After spending your day interacting and networking with chemical professionals (or folks with an interest in science), relax in the luxury accommodations at The Henry hotel. If you would rather go exploring, the hotel is close to restaurants with unlimited cuisine choices, shopping, casinos, museums, and golf courses. Our Detroit Tigers are at home that week so head downtown for a Detroit Tigers game at Comerica Park. You could spend your day at Greenfield Village, see amazing works of art the Detroit Institute of Arts, or check out rare cars at the Automotive Hall of Fame. 


We have provided links to just a few of the great attractions below. If you don't see something, simply ask one of the attendees from the area, we love to talk about our home town!

Greenfield Village

Entering Greenfield Village is like stepping into an 80-acre time machine. It takes you back to the sights, sounds and sensations of America’s past. There are 83 authentic, historic structures, from Noah Webster’s home, where he wrote the first American dictionary, to Thomas Edison’s Menlo Park laboratory, to the courthouse where Abraham Lincoln practiced law. The buildings and the things to see are only the beginning. There’s the fun stuff, too. In Greenfield Village, you can ride in a genuine Model T or “pull” glass with world-class artisans; you can watch 1867 baseball or ride a train with a 19th-century steam engine. It’s a place where you can choose your lunch from an 1850s menu or spend a quiet moment pondering the home and workshop where the Wright brothers invented the airplane. Greenfield Village is a celebration of people — people whose unbridled optimism came to define modern-day America.
