Summer 2015 Announcement

Summer is upon us, and we would like to make a few announcements before we wish you a fun-filled and productive summer. We need candidates for our annual elections, and there are three chemistry meetings coming up in late summer and early fall.

Elections: Our annual elections for members of the Executive Committee of CALPACS are coming up in the fall season. We need candidates  for several three-year terms, and two one-year terms. The success of our section depends vitally on the participation of its members. Please consider volunteering to serve chemistry and the sciences. Your ideas could have a very large impact. Please use the contact form on our web site to express your interest, or contact Dr. Al Censullo, Chair of the Nominating Committee, directly.
