Dear ACS Milwaukee members,

It is almost the end of my time being a Chair of the Milwaukee section of ACS. I am excited about what our local section is becoming once again: dynamic community of volunteers who are passionate of spreading our love for chemistry.

My goals for the year were to improve communication and participation and I hope you agree that we are moving in the right direction. This year we organized and sponsored Chemists Celebrate Earth Day, Chemistry Olympiad, National Chemistry Week, Girls and STEM event, poster sessions, student travel awards, dinner-meeting with excellent speakers, revived Instrument Donation program, and started monthly Science Cafe.

We are also working on building partnerships with Milwaukee Public Schools, Discovery World and other museums, so stay tuned for new volunteer opportunities next year under the leadership of 2017 Chair Andy Zrinsky. What we were not able to do is to present the Milwaukee Section and Teacher of the Year awards because we did not  have enough nominations . 

Thank you for giving me an opportunity to serve our community.

Best regards,

Dina Borysenko
