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! Expect good food, excellent company, and fun entertainment for the whole family. We could use some extra help in making the event a success. If you have some time this summer to serve on the Picnic Committee, reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
On that note, if you have been on the fence about becoming more involved in the San Diego ACS leadership, there is no better time than now to start getting your feet wet. At the end of this year, multiple key positions will be vacant including Chair, Chair-elect, and Secretary. In this month’s issue, we feature a helpful infographic to give you an idea the responsibilities that each position entails and who is eligible to run. If you are still an undergraduate, the San Diego ACS could benefit from your voice, ideas, and energy. Positions such as Member-at-Large are open to any due-paying ACS member. Click here to read our by-laws for details about our leadership structure. You can also reach out to me at email@example.com to set up a one-on-one conversation to explore ways your talents may be leveraged to benefit our chemically-minded community. To declare your candidacy, send your name, ACS member number, and position you would like to attain to Carolina Ibarra at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than September 28, 2023.
