Chair Notes – June 2023

Dear esteemed members,

Last month, I had a great time mingling with some of you at Stone Brewery while enjoying delicious appetizers and Stone’s signature brews. If you missed this event, we have several opportunities on the horizon for you to get to know more of your fellow members and make valuable professional connections. This September, the yearly San Diego ACS Picnic will return from its pandemic hiatus!

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! Master glass artist, Kathleen Mitchell, treated us to a special experience at the Chemistry and Art of Glass. Participants learned about the chemical principles of glass and some of the techniques that turn raw materials into a work of art. 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.
