Your help would be greatly appreciated in identifying experts for consideration for appointment by the President-Elect to the 2018-2019 National Awards Canvassing and Selection Committees. Please consider individuals who are respected scientists, past chairs of your division, and colleagues. Please consider people who will be open to entertaining nominations from chemists and chemical engineers, as well as people working at the interfaces of other sciences.
In an effort to identify additional Canvassing and Selection Committee members, the Board Committee on Grants and Awards has developed a self-nomination form, available at https://fs18.formsite.com/ACSAwards/form11/index.html?1436810347950 . ACS members can complete and return it by Friday, November 25, 2016 to be considered for this program. For information about the ACS National Awards, please visit www.acs.org/nationalawards.
In addition, ACS is committed to recognizing excellence in people who represent groups not commonly identified as recipients of ACS awards, such as women and minorities, chemists from industry and the national laboratories, and faculty members at universities not routinely noted in the award recipient pool. As always, I also invite you to suggest or nominate individuals by November 1, 2016, for any of the ACS National Awards at http://www.nominate.acs.org.
Thank you for your help with this matter. It is vital to the chemistry community that the ACS award recipients continue to be of the highest caliber.
