All submissions are carefully reviewed by the Committee on Committees (ConC) as it develops appointment recommendations during the ACS Fall Meeting. ConC seeks input of the Chair and Staff Liaison for each committee when developing recommendations and does not directly appoint or reappoint individuals to serve on committees. The role of ConC is to make recommendations for appointments that are acted upon, both individually and jointly, by the ACS President Elect and Board Chair in Fall.
ConC actively seeks to identify and involve individuals from across the Society to help ensure that members with a wide range of experiences, backgrounds, and perspectives are available to be recommended and encourages all ACS members to submit a preference form.
With the number of actual appointments being limited, not everyone who submits a preference form will be appointed to serve. However, ConC does ensure that every ACS member who submits preferences is given due consideration.
