The ACS Committee on Nominations & Elections selects, from among the broad diversity of the membership, candidates who can provide quality leadership.
Composition and Duties
The committee is composed of fifteen voting Councilors elected by Council, and its duties include:
In addition to subcommittees to prepare slates of nominees and candidates for Society offices, N&E has three subcommittees to facilitate the work of the committee.
This subcommittee is tasked with maximizing communications and services to nominees and candidates for ACS National Office.
This subcommittee is tasked with coordinating with staff to conduct interim elections as the need arises. Additionally, the subcommittee will continually review procedures for elections to make the process more efficient and reliable.
To strengthen the Society’s current leadership identification process this Subcommittee is tasked with establishing communications between key areas within the Society to secure a high level of sustainable, qualified and diversified leaders for the future. These areas would include leadership on the committee level and the ACS national office level. Communications would include working with the Board of Director’s Leadership Advisory Board in efforts to identify emerging leaders within the Society.
ACS invites all chemical scientists and engineers to join us in achieving this vision.
