Chair Notes – March 2022

Dear esteemed members and colleagues, February was a great month for our Section as it marked our first in-person event since 2020!

I would like to thank the National ACS, for funding my Innovative Project Grant, which made the event possible. Hopefully, the COVID surge will continue to recede, so we can get back to doing more in-person events.
