Using a public warehouse? Tell them to join NACD!
Are you using a public warehouse not affiliated with NACD? Joining NACD as a Chemical Handler Affiliate (CHA) provides numerous benefits to the public warehouse, but your company also gains tremendous value in your NACD membership when they join. Since CHAs must also comply with Responsible Distribution and pass site verification once each cycle, your company's site verification will probably in turn be more productive, less labor intensive and less stressful! For more information about all of the benefits to you in addition to those of the public warehouse, contact Roselle Foley at

Unsure if your public warehouse is an NACD Chemical Handler Affiliate? Check here.

The 4 most effective ways leaders solve problems
With as many problems as we are all faced with in our work and life, it seems as if there is never enough time to solve each one without dealing with some adversity along the way. Problems keep mounting so fast that we find ourselves taking short-cuts to temporarily alleviate the tension points — so we can move onto the next problem. In the process, we fail to solve the core of each problem we are dealt; thus we continuously get caught in the trap of a never-ending cycle that makes it difficult to find any real resolutions. Sound familiar?

Small business recruitment guide
Business 2 Community
For a small business, hiring the right candidate is crucial. Replacing an employee can be expensive — some estimates place the cost at around 20 percent of an employee's annual salary. As a result, many companies try to save money by recruiting new employees themselves, rather than paying for the services of a professional recruitment agency. However, small businesses often don't have any recruitment experience, and therefore make costly hiring mistakes. There are ways to avoid this.
