The recent national election and its outcome has been covered from countless different angles, but what does it mean for the chemistry community? Join us for a special broadcast from the Nation’s Capital as The ACS Presidential Succession:  ACS president Donna J. Nelson, ACS president-elect Allison A. Campbell and ACS past president Diane Grob Schmidt have a lively discussion with the National Journal Political Editor Josh Kraushaar and ACS Office of Public Affairs Director Glenn Ruskin.
