Equipment Depot Newsletter March 14, 2014
Our next Open House is Saturday, March 21 2015 at 10 AM. We plan to be there on Friday, March 20th at 10 AM for Prep.
We did some Spring cleaning last Tuesday. Thanks to Linda, Duane, Matt, Daniel, Innokenti, Daniel M., Auritte, and everyone.
We also discussed format for emails, heavy equipment, and I took some healthy input. The Bio-Link CCSF Depot has grown from small casual family to 630 people, and I have to remenber that. 🙂
The plan this week is to assemble Friday 3/20 for setup at 10 AM to prep and clean unless there are other major shipments.

City College of San Francisco
Speaking to the Southern Governors Association in August 2014, former President Bill Clinton articulated his theme for economic development: “Everywhere in the world and everywhere in America where there are networks of cooperation, good things are happening.”
This spirit of cooperation has led to a community college network of collaboration in biotechnology workforce development beginning with investments by the National Science Foundation in the late 1990s.
In 1998, the NSF established BioLink, an Advanced Technology Education project hosted at the Community College of San Francisco supporting the growing biotech sector.
In 2004, the U. S. Department of Labor, building on the President’s High Growth Job Initiative in the Bush administration, funded the National Center for the Biotechnology Workforce (NCBW) at Forsyth Technical Community College. Though centered in North Carolina, the network extended to other states and cities with biotech strengths – Iowa, New Hampshire, San Diego and Seattle.
Foundations of Environmental Monitoring class is starting at San Francisco City College and its the first step to getting an Environmental Monitoring Certificate. This class expands on the successful CCSF Bridge To Biotech program. The Environmental Monitoring Certificate is a dynamic new program which prepares students for entry-level positions in the growing field of environmental monitoring and testing.
Even though CCSF has already started there are still space to start the program. The class starts September 11th. After getting the certificate, students can get jobs working in places like SF PUC, EPA and private companies like Genentech.
