You are invited to help the American Chemical Society Board, committees, and management to better understand the key trends that will affect chemists, chemistry, and the Society in coming years.  Attendees of the New Orleans National Meeting can participate in a one-hour discussion of research into what the future might hold. Topics raised during this discussion will be used to improve the focus of ACS offerings to maximize their value to you.  If you are interested in sharing your thoughts, please volunteer by emailing with your name and contact information before Friday, March 8.  Participants will receive a gift card as a token of thanks.  We are interested in what you think.
