The American Chemical Society welcomed its new officers during a reception on a bitterly cold evening in Washington, D.C. During the Jan. 22 event, ACS governance and key staff members mingled with guests from the Washington science establishment and funding agencies. ACS President Thomas J. Barton spoke about his enthusiasm for his new role and his plans for the year ahead. “I will be focusing on a number of areas including energy, environment, and the public’s view of chemistry,” he said. “I have many passions, perhaps too many,” he added, but he noted that improving the quality of K–12 science education in the U.S. tops his list.

Carroll Jr., and ACS Treasurer Brian A. Bernstein.
