To better meet the needs of the 30% ACS members who are 60 years of age or older, the Senior Chemists Task Force (SCTF) of 19 members with ACS Past-President Eli Pearce as chair was created at the ACS Spring 2009 National Meeting. This was formerly the Silver Circle Working Group. The SCTF mission will be to focus in the areas of education, financial and personal concerns, networking, and consultancy, with particular emphasis on counseling and guidance of undergraduates and graduate students; working with school districts, high school chemistry clubs, and Project SEED students; symposia and social gatherings at ACS national and regional meetings (e.g. Silver Circle & Retiree Breakfast); providing expertise to ACS committees, technical divisions, local sections, and outside organizations.
