After registering (registration is free) you will receive an email with information about joining via Zoom.

The CMSACS Executive Committee urges all section members (you are automatically a member if you are a member in good standing of the ACS, with an address in the area served by our section) to make every effort to attend the business meeting of the section, which will begin at 6:00 pm (the Zoom meeting will go "live" at 5:45 pm). There is very important section business to carry out involving the approval of the section's new bylaws (find them here) that will streamline operations; the current bylaws are several decades old and in urgent need of updating. A quorum is required in order to move forward with the process so we would greatly appreciate it if you joined us by 6:00 pm next Tuesday.

Dr. Kathy Lee's presentation, at 6:30 pm, will follow the section's business meeting.

On October 13 our 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 (, 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.

Please join us for these and other upcoming meetings, remotely at present and, we hope, in the not too distant future face-to-face as well.
