ACS Local Section

Well, its official!  I'm the chair-elect for the Columbus section of the American Chemical Society.  The election results were announced earlier this week... now before you think this is such a huge feat, understand that I was coerced into running because they had no one else.  They tried to say it'll be good for the section, and I really hope that I will benefit the section, but let's be honest... they are running out of people.

I'm really hoping that I can help do some different things for the section, but we shall see... chemists and scientists are notoriously stuck in their ways, creatures of habit if you will!  I was elected to chair-elect, which basically means I'm "in training" this coming year (2011) and actually chair of the section the following year (2012).

If you'd like to check out the Columbus local section website, please do so here.  We are a section that is very active in the community (compared to others, from what I hear) and I have had many good experiences from being a member.


  1. Congrats! I imagine that'll be a good experience and really good for networking and such.
