ChemLuminary Awards in Boston on Tuesday, August 18


If you are going to the Boston National Meeting, please plan to attend the 17th Annual ChemLuminary Awards event hosted by ACS President Diane Grob Schmidt.  The keynote address will be presented by Cynthia K. Larive, recipient of the 2015 ACS Volunteer Service Award.  Her presentation will be followed by the presentation of awards to local sections, divisions, and regional meetings for their 2014 volunteer efforts.

The event will be held Tuesday, August 18, at The Westin Copley Place Boston Hotel, beginning with a reception and poster session from 8:00-8:45 p.m.  Nine divisions that have been selected as award finalists will be presenting their successful activities at this poster session.  The awards presentation will follow from 9:00-10:00 p.m., and a celebration with dancing will wind up the evening until 12:00 midnight.  The event is free, and everyone is encouraged to attend to celebrate and acknowledge the scores of volunteers who supported ACS in so very many ways last year.
