What we've been up to in 2020...
With several engaging and educating events, we've been off to a fantastic 2020 as part our year of Leadership, Learning and Chemistry! Learn about what's been happening below, and then continue scrolling to learn about what's next, important information from your local section executive committee, and announcements from our committees.
From 2020 Past Chair, Cheryl Trusty
I want to tell the section members how much I have enjoyed being the 2019 chair of the ACS Georgia Local Section. It was the highlight of my year! So many of us worked hard all year to truly make it a year of "Elements of Collaboration". I want to share some special acknowledge and appreciation for our members and leaders within the section:
- Mark Mitchell and Ajay Mallia for a successful 50-60-70 year award, including an excellent program!
- Ajay Mallia, Jahari Soward, Tyler Kinner, and Joe Stoner for help in documenting the year's activities for the annual report (which is viewable on our website, acsga.org)!
- All of our volunteers and members who participated in ACS Georgia Section activities this year. We nominated ourselves for 16 ChemLuminary awards - I'm sure you'll join us in hoping we'll get all 16 (including best large section)!
- Everyone in the section, but especially Ajay Mallia, Jahari Soward, Tyler Kinner, and Holly Davis for their support and encouragement over the past two years during the chair succession.
From the Secretary, Tyler Kinner
I appreciate our members for reading this far into the newsletter! I hope you've noticed the new look and feel of our section emails by now - and that you've been receiving just a smidge fewer for our event announcements.
As we move to improve our communication with members, switching from our previous email provider to a new, more modern system has allowed us to better tailor communications. We value your time and want to keep communications as effective as possible.
Be on the look out for a member survey to help us improve these communications in the near future. If you have any questions or concerns about our email communications, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
