The American Chemical Society is seeking nominations for the the 2019-2020 ACS National Awards Canvassing and Selection Committees.
Selection Committees are chemical professionals appointed to the committee to determine the recipient for each national award.
Canvassing Committees identify potential new nominees and arrange for their nomination. Canvassing Committees are established for awards with 8 or fewer total nominees for two successive award cycles and remain in place until the nominations are above 8 for at least two successive award cycles.
Committee members must be members of the Society. Members serve a term of three award-years and most committee work is accomplished online or by telephone. This appointment does not involve any travel. The selection cycle begins in March of each year and ends in July.
If you are interested in serving on the committee, please fill out the following form: https://fs18.formsite.com/ACSAwards/form11/index.html?1436810347950

It is our great pleasure to announce that Dr. Sue Brantley Distinguished Professor of Geosciences at the Pennsylvania State University was awarded the 2017 Geochemistry Division Medal. Sue is recognized for her outstanding scientific accomplishments and impact in the fields of geochemistry and Earth surface processes, leadership, mentorship of students and junior scientists, and service to the geochemistry community. Her highly influential work on the kinetics of mineral-fluid interactions and weathering rates of natural systems, for example, has truly and profoundly changed our understanding of geochemical systems. Please join us in congratulating Sue!
