Four candidates are vying for two director-at-large openings: Kenneth P. Fivizzani, who is retired from Nalco, in Naperville, Ill.; Wayne E. Jones Jr., professor and chair of chemistry at the State University of New York, Binghamton; Bonnie A. Lawlor, who is retired from the National Federation of Abstracting & Information Services, Philadelphia; and Barbara A.

Results will be announced in early November.
