JANUARY 2017 Monthly Meeting
Thursday, January 12, 2017
The Broad Institute
415 Main St., Cambridge, MA 02142

This meeting will be an exciting event featuring Dr. Allison Campbell, 2017 President of the American Chemcial Society. This is a joint meeting with the Women Chemists Committee. We believe this will be Dr. Campbell's first local section visit as 2017 President of the American Chemical Society.

2017 Presidential Focus for the American Chemical Society
The health of our planet, the safe practice of science, science literacy, and advocacy for the societal value of chemistry and its practitioners are the primary tenets driving American Chemical Society’s (ACS) 2017 President Allison Campbell. This talk will highlight technical programming, events and initiatives planned during her tenure in the ACS Presidential succession to showcase how chemistry can be accomplished safely, sustainably, and securely and drive solutions to our most pressing global issues.
President Campbell’s technical programming focus on a sustainable energy future, understanding therole of chemistry in the earth’s atmosphere and climate, the health of our soil and terrestrial systems, and the availability of clean water will be particularly highlighted.
There will be networking opportunities with President Campbell, our members, and the local scientific community during the social hour, dinner, and shortly after the talk.
We want to thank the Broad Institute, our 2017 Chair-Elect, the Women Chemists Committee, and the National ACS for organizing and facilitating this event.
