The candidates for director of District III are Alan B. Cooper, president of Cooper MedChem Consulting, in West Caldwell, N.J.; and Teri Quinn Gray, regional technology manager for DuPont Performance Materials, in Wilmington, Del.

The candidates for director of District VI are Rita R. Boggs, CEO, American Research & Testing, in Gardena, Calif.; and Paul W. Jagodzinski, professor and dean, Northern Arizona University, in Flagstaff.

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.

Candidate statements will run in the Sept. 11 issue of C&EN. ACS members will have the option of voting for president-elect and other members of the board of directors via the Internet, or they can opt-in to receive a paper ballot, which will be mailed at the end of September. Results will be announced in early November.
