WASHINGTON, D.C. (Apr. 25, 2011) – This year’s ACC ChemSecure Conference will be held at the New Orleans Marriott in New Orleans, Louisiana, May 9-11, 2011, and is designed for security professionals in the chemical industry. During the conference attendees will have the opportunity to gain a better understanding of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) regulatory programs and learn how to meet their requirements through general sessions and intense breakouts.

“Establishing a constructive dialogue between regulators and the regulated community is key to the success of comprehensive regulatory programs like the Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards (CFATS),” said Cal Dooley, President & CEO of the American Chemistry Council. “ACC’s ChemSecure Conference provides an invaluable forum to discuss important issues and allows industry professionals to share best practices so they can meet their security goals.”

ChemSecure remains one of the industry’s premier events and this year’s agenda will focus on important topics of interest to security professionals in the chemical industry such as cyber-security, physical plant security, personal background vetting, information sharing and advances in the Responsible Care® Security Code.

This year’s keynote address will be delivered by Dan Borne, President of the Louisiana Chemical Association and the Louisiana Chemical Industry Alliance. Dan will provide a local flavor for participants and talk about the significant progress that the chemical industry has achieved to enhance security in Louisiana.  In addition, attendees will hear from representatives from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security who will discuss regulatory developments.
