On behalf of the Board of Managers, it is my pleasure and honor to welcome the Chemical Society of Washington (CSW) to 2014. I’m looking forward to supporting the excellent activities of the organization and to working to ensure that the CSW continues to meet the needs of its membership. It has been said before, but CSW is a large – very large according to ACS – section representing a vibrant, diverse chemical community. With over 4,000 members, we have the fifth largest membership of the 187 sections in the country. We also cover a wide range of territory, from the western borders of Loudoun and Fairfax counties in Virginia to the Eastern Shore of Maryland and the northern border of Montgomery and Caroline counties to the southern tip of St. Mary’s county. Being this large affords us opportunities with regards to resources and a diversity of membership, but it also can make it challenging to play a useful role in all of those areas. The CSW Board of Managers needs to hear from you about the resources, activities, and programs you feel would strengthen chemistry in your area. Please take a moment to join us on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/ACSCSW), send us an e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org), write us a letter (O-218, 1155 16th St, NW, Washington, DC 20036), or attend one of our events) and share your thoughts and ideas. more»
