General meeting information

June 22, 2019 | APPEARED IN VOLUME 97, ISSUE 25

 

Technical programming by the numbers

29 technical divisions and 7 committees hosting original programming

9,594 accepted papers, including 6,997 oral discussions and 2,597 poster presentations

1,088 half-day sessions, composed of 932 oral sessions and 156 poster sessions, which include Sci-Mix

127 concurrent technical sessions, the most in one day, on Monday afternoon.

No city is better suited than San Diego to host the American Chemical Society Fall 2019 National Meeting & Exposition, aptly themed “Chemistry & Water.” Our primary venue, the San Diego Convention Center, sits along the majestic San Diego Bay in the city’s scenic Gaslamp Quarter.

National meetings have proved to be an important learning platform for established leaders in chemistry, young chemists growing their portfolios, and students learning about the multifaceted world of chemistry. The meetings afford attendees from academia and industry numerous formal and informal opportunities to share viewpoints on the ever-growing impact of chemistry on ­everyday life. The diverse attendee list for the fall 2019 meeting will include participants from across the US and the globe.

Register now at www.acs.org/Fall2019SanDiego to be in San Diego Aug. 25–29 to take part in stimulating symposia and poster sessions that showcase new thought trends in chemistry, interact with exhibitors of groundbreaking technologies in chemistry, complete coursework that can lead to career advancement, and meet with job recruiters who may offer employment opportunities on the spot.

Online planner and mobile app

So many choices, so little time. The number of oral sessions, poster presentations, and specialty events for you to select from is astounding. The online planner includes the most current technical programming information and is available now. Be sure to consult it as you map out your schedule. Visit www.acs.org/Fall2019SanDiego to access the online planner.

If you have not downloaded the ACS Meetings & Events App to your smartphone or tablet, you should do so now. The mobile app is the primary resource for up-to-date meeting information. The San Diego event will be available on Aug. 5, and attendees will be able to access meeting information at that time. Attendees can use their ACS ID to sync between the online planner and mobile app.

As a reminder, in support of the society’s sustainability efforts, ACS no longer prints a program book.

Committee agenda

Committee meeting formats and structure

ACS governance committees generally operate in one of three formats as described below. These formats can change during the course of a meeting as discussions and deliberations change. It is the responsibility of the committee chair and the staff liaison to ensure that only the appropriate people are present during a meeting.

Open meetings: Any ACS member may attend an open meeting. At these meetings, members are encouraged to voice concerns, issue compliments, offer suggestions, and express interest in or raise questions about matters over which the committee has purview. The assumption is that participation is welcomed and will be orderly and courteous. Only committee members may vote.

Closed meetings: The committee chair must declare any executive meeting closed when confidential or sensitive personnel, financial, or legal matters of the society are discussed. At that point, only officially appointed or elected committee members, associates, consultants, staff liaisons, and the appointed Committee on Committees (ConC) liaison shall remain in the meeting. Others may stay in the meeting at the discretion of the chair. Once these discussions have been completed, the committee should return to executive mode.

Executive meetings: Attendance and participation is limited to officially appointed or elected committee members, associates, advisers, consultants, staff liaisons, and the appointed ConC liaison. Liaisons from other groups and both ex officio and elected councilors may attend; active participation by these groups is at the invitation of the chair. Only committee members may vote.
