Message from the Chair

David Barondeau Dear visitors to the Local Section 450, Texas A&M website:

As we begin 2016, I wanted to remind you of some of the Local Texas A&M Section L450 events coming up this year.

Our first major social event, the Cotton Award Symposium for Excellence in Chemical Research, will take place March 8, 2016. Professor Steve Lippard, of MIT, will be this year's recipient. Along with him, Professors Ken Karlin of Johns Hopkins University and Jon Sessler of UT Austin will be speakers at the symposium. A banquet will be held at the Philips Event Center at Briarcrest.

Our next social events will be the Scott Medal Symposium in October, and later in the fall, our yearly ACS banquet. Dates and locations will be announced soon. These are fantastic opportunities for all ACS members to meet and email reminders will be sent in the near future.

Take time to become active as ACS members in our Chapter. Write to me (, Steven Wheeler, our Secretary (, Steve Lockless, our Treasurer ( or Sarbajit Banerjee (, our Chair Elect, of your interest.

David Barondeau, Chair
