Call for Nominations: The 2017 James Flack Norris Award for Outstanding Achievement in the Teaching of Chemistry

Deadline: April 15, 2017

Nominations are invited for the 2017 James Flack Norris Award, which consists of a certificate and an honorarium of $3,000 and is given annually by the Northeastern Section (NESACS).  The presentation will take place at a ceremony and dinner in November 2017, and will include a formal address by the awardee.  The Award was established in 1950 by NESACS to honor the memory of James Flack Norris (1871-1940), a professor of chemistry at Simmons College and M.I.T., chair of NESACS in 1904, and ACS President in 1925-26. 
Individuals or teams of individuals may be nominated.  Nominee(s) should have served with special distinction as teachers of chemistry at any level: secondary school, college, and/or graduate school.  With the presentation of the first Award in 1951, awardees have included many eminent teachers at all levels whose efforts have had a wide-ranging effect on chemical education.  The recipient will be selected from an international list of nominees who have served with special distinction as teachers of chemistry with significant achievements. 

Call for Symposia for the Fall 2017 ACS Meeting in Washington DC

Hello CHED Folks!

Now that “Black Friday” has started 2 weeks before Thanksgiving and the elections are finally over, it is now perfectly safe to propose symposia for the Fall ACS National Meeting to be held in Washington, DC on August 20-24, 2017! 

Abstract deadline for the Spring 2017 ACS Meeting is November 7, 2016

Greetings CHED members,

We hope you are planning to join us in San Francisco this April at the ACS national meeting. Please be aware that the DEADLINE for authors is Monday, November 7 at 11:59 PM EST.

We strongly recommend that you complete your abstract earlier than that since the system becomes very slow on the deadline date. Ideally, you will have your submission in by the last of the month — celebrate Hallowe’en by having a piece of candy and submitting an abstract! That way, if there are any glitches in submission you've got some time to resolve it.
