16th Annual ChemLuminary Awards Celebration

ACS Honors Volunteers in San Francisco

The 16th Annual ChemLuminary Awards celebration was held during the ACS National Meeting in San Francisco, CA, on August 12, 2014. The ceremony gave members a great opportunity to recognize local sections, regional meetings, and divisions that receive accolades for their tireless efforts and work in promoting chemistry and the chemical sciences in local areas during 2013.

ACS President Tom Barton opened the ChemLuminary Awards event with welcoming remarks followed by a keynote address presented by Dr. Robert A. Pribush, recipient of the 2014 ACS Volunteer Service Award. Prior to the awards presentation, a poster session was held for members. The posters were presented by finalists of each ChemLuminary Award that reflects their outstanding activities being recognized. The awards are given to well-deserved local sections, technical divisions, regional meetings, and International Sciences Chapters. Immediately following the awards presentation, the celebration continued on the dance floor until midnight.
