The Committee on Personnel and Nominations held discussions this summer via email to prepare a slate of nominees to present to the Executive Committee at the fall national ACS meeting. One position on the Examinations Institute Board of Trustees and one position on the Board of Publication of the Journal of Chemical Education become vacant at the end of 2010. Diane Bunce who is currently the Chair of the Board of Publication will be stepping away from the board as will Marcy Towns who serves on the Board of Trustees.
CPN will present two nominees for each position to the Executive Committee who will then appoint one candidate for each Board at the meeting in Boston. CPN has also been gathering names of members to be appointed to various committees in CHED. The CHED chair-elect, chair, past chair, and secretary will meet with the chair of CPN in Boston to make the appointments.
Marcy Towns, Chair CPN
