The section will hold another meeting to discuss section business, followed by a presentation by Dr. Katherine Lee, with title "Hindsight is 20/2020: A career in medicinal chemistry". This will be a talk of interest to students and will include some thoughts on alternate careers for chemists and some ACS career resources at the end. In addition to an illustrious career in the pharmaceutical industry (https://www.pfizer.com/people/medical-experts/science/katherine_lee), Dr. Lee has been the chair of the NESACS, the 2018 Chair of the ACS Division of Organic Chemistry, and is currently a member of the ACS Board of Directors as the District I Director.

4:00pm: NESACS Virtual Talk by Derek Lowe

Last April the Central Massachusetts Section of the ACS (CMSACS) was forced to cancel the scheduled meeting and presentation by Dr. Derek Lowe due to the COVID-19 situation. On September 10 Dr. Lowe will be giving a Zoom talk to the Northeastern Section of the ACS (NESACS), which has graciously extended the invitation to attend to the members of our section. Dr. Lowe's presentation title is "Coronavirus Therapies: What's Probably Coming, and What Probably Isn't"; please follow this link to register. Upon registering you will receive an email with details of how to join the Zoom meeting.

 

5:15pm: CMSACS Virtual Section Meeting - bylaws focus


Following the presentation CMSACS will hold a separate Zoom meeting on important section business, specifically the section's new bylaws. Please try to attend as a quorum is required. A  link to this meeting, which is different from the one for Dr. Lowe's presentation, was sent in a section email.

The proposed bylaws have been approved by the executive committee and vetted by national's Committee on Constitution and Bylaws (C&B).  

They should be reviewed by the section members. 

Review them here.

Cancelled: April Local Section Meeting

hopefully postponed

We regret that due to the COVID-19 epidemic we must cancel the April 7 meeting of the Central Massachusetts Section of the ACS. Our host, the Worcester Polytechnic Institute, is discouraging all nonessential events on campus; this may become a ban in the near future. We hope to reschedule the meeting for a later time, likely in the early fall, when, one hopes, the epidemic will have subsided. Dr. Derek Lowe has graciously agreed to speak to us at that time.

Proposed bylaws for section review

The proposed bylaws have been approved by the executive committee and vetted by national's Committee on Constitution and Bylaws (C&B).
