I want to welcome Christopher McCarthy as the new ACS Network Community Manager. Chris McCarthy replaces Mark Obrien who has moved on to be the manager of the ACS Leadership Development Program.


Chris has been at ACS for a little more than five years, first as a communications specialist in ACS Meetings and more recently with the Virtual Content team in the Membership and Scientific Advancement Division. Many folks may know Chris for his work with ACS on Facebook and Twitter, so he has a good handle on social media.


Prior to working at ACS, Chris worked in PR and communications for trade associations representing the flavor and fragrance industries as well as for an interdisciplinary computing research institute at the University of Maryland.


Expect to see more content in the future from Chris.
