The division needs your help in developing programs for the ACS 2011 regional meetings. The regional meeting schedule is:
Middle Atlantic College Park,MD May 21-24
Central Indianapolis, IN June 8–10
Northwest Portland, OR June 26-29
Joint Midwest/ Great Lakes St. Louis, MO Oct. 19-22
Southeast Richmond, VA Oct. 25-28
How can you help? Ideas for symposia are welcome. Please send them to Dan Libby at rdlibby@chem. moravian.edu . Want to organize a symposium or present a paper? Even better! A half-day symposium means recruiting six speakers. Some symposia can be organized with four or five speakers. It is usually easiest to recruit speakers from the area the meeting is being held, or those who will be attending the meeting anyway. Organizing symposia or presenting a paper is a great way to develop your professional network andraise your professional profile in the world of chemistry.
Lisa Balbes is helping to organize the 2011 Joint Midwest Regional Meeting/Great Lakes Regional Meeting in St. Louis, and John Borchardt is working on developing a Division of Professional Relations program for the Southwest Regional Meeting in Austin, Texas in November. If you want to present a paper, organize a symposium or have a symposium idea, contact them at lisa (at) balbes (dot) com or jkborchardt (at) hotmail (dot) com.
