Local Section Elections

Looking for a way to get more involved?

Balloting for upcoming local section balloting will take place in October. If you wish to serve or nominate someone for one of these positions, please notify Dr. Margaret Kanipes (mikanipe@ncat.edu) no later than Sept. 30, 2019. The following positions are up for election:

Chair-Elect

 The Chair-Elect shall be assist the Chair with the direction and management of the Section. In the absence of the Chair, the duties of the office shall devolve upon the Chair-Elect. The Chair-Elect will also serve as the Chair of the Program Committee for the following year and as an ex-officio member of the Awards Committee. The Chair-Elect will serve as Chair of the Local Section the following year.

Treasurer

The Treasurer shall have charge of the funds of the Section, keep an accurate record of all receipts and disbursements, receive dues, and make those disbursements approved by the Executive Committee. The Treasurer shall render an account of all transactions and of the financial condition of the Section to the Executive Committee at times set by the Committee and shall submit such reports as are required by the Constitution and Bylaws of the SOCIETY. This can be a one or multi-year position.

Councilor

The Section’s Councilor or Alternate Councilor shall attend meetings of the Council of the SOCIETY and represent the Section at such meetings. Councilors are elected for a three-year term. First-year Councilors are seldom appointed to an ACS committee. However, the newly elected Councilor should seriously consider becoming involved in an ACS national committee during the second year to maximize service to the ACS. Strive to serve more than one term as a Councilor and looking out for your constituency. An understanding of the strategic direction of the Society will be vital in this regard.

September CNC-ACS meeting

 We will honor our 50, 60, and 70 year ACS members. Dr. Gary Van Berkel will be our guest speaker. Dr. van Berkel was awarded the Biemann medal in 2005 for his elucidation of the electrochemical processes taking place during electrospray ionization (as in LC/MS). Some of you may remember Dr. Van Berkel was our guest speaker for the Analytical Sub-Group in 2001 or 2002. This should be an exciting evening – a chance to hear an exceptional mass spectrometrist, honor our most senior members, renew old friendships, and network with other CNC members
