In 2003, Bloom assumed the presidency of The Fragrance Foundation, a global organization with a primary focus to build awareness and promote fragrance use around the world.

The symposium will also feature the Research Institute for Fragrance Materials’s (RIFM) Christen Sachse-Vasquez as a speaker. RIFM gathers and analyzes scientific data and engages in testing and safety evaluation of fragrance materials. RIFM works closely with IFRA to develop Standards as part of the Code of Practice with the final objective to protect the consumer and the environment. The RIFM Database is the starting point for material safety evaluations and group summary publications. It is the most comprehensive, worldwide source of toxicology data, literature and general information on fragrance and flavor raw materials.

Sachse-Vasquez was appointed as the technical manager of the RIFM toxicological database in 2005, and has direct responsibility for managing the staff and operations. Before joining RIFM, she worked at the New York City Housing Authority as a manager in the lead abatement and disclosure unit.
