Message from the Chair

Dong Hee SonWelcome to the TAMU local section of the American Chemical Society. In the following, I would like to give an overview of the activities that are planned for 2019.

Our first major event this day F.A. Cotton Medal Symposium, which is scheduled for March 22, 2019. This year's F.A. Cotton Award winner is Dr. A. Paul Alivisatos, who will present a lecture along with several additional speakers. The Symposium will be followed by a banquet.

In October, the Scott Award Symposium will take place. Also in the fall, we plan to have our ACS local section meeting and banquet. The dates and specific programming for these events will be announced soon.

We are also participating in a number of other activities, including the annual Chemistry Open House and Science Exploratorium on campus, or the selection of contestants for the National Chemistry Olympiad.

Whether or not you are already a member, there are many opportunities to take part of these activities. The TAMU local section of the ACS relies on your participation, input, and gift of time as a volunteer. Please do not hesitate to contact me at any time.
