                             Division of the American Chemical Society from October 12-14, 2010. I am pleased to personally
                             welcome your members, and know you will enjoy your time here in Milwaukee.

                             Milwaukee’s superior attractions combined with its renowned warmth and hospitality assure you of an
                             enjoyable visit. The new one-of-a-kind Harley-Davidson Museum dazzles with its interactive exhibits
                             featuring motorcycles, history and American pop culture. The magnificent moveable “wings” of the

                             dining options and nightlife throughout the city will assure you of after-hours fun. Unique shopping
                             awaits in Milwaukee’s “SoHo” district, the Historic Third Ward, and the quaint ethnic neighborhoods
                             of Old World Third Street, Brady Street, Walker’s Point and Dr. Martin Luther King Drive invite all to
                             experience the city’s rich cultural tradition and diversity.

                             I know you will find our city the perfect meeting destination and hope you take the opportunity to
