AWARDS & SCHOLARSHIPS
CINF Lifetime Membership
The Division of Chemical Information (CINF) is pleased
to announce that it will be awarding the first CINF
Lifetime Membership to Dr. W. Val Metanomski.
Val has actively served the Division for more than thirty
years, beginning as a member of the Program Committee
in 1975. He researched and wrote the CINF history, "50
Years of Chemical Information in the American
Chemical Society: 1943-1993," for the 50th anniversary
of the Founding of the ACS Chemical Literature Group
(now CINF), and he compiled the "CINF Historical
Milestones" for CINF's 50th anniversary. Since 1990,
Val has served as the Division's Archivist/Historianonly
the second person to fill that role since the Division
was established. Under his leadership the CINF archives
have become an invaluable resource for future
generations. The Division is pleased to express its deep
gratitude to Val for his significant work by bestowing
the honor of Lifetime Membership in the Division.
Congratulations, Val, and many thanks!!!!
Osman Guner, CINF Chair
2006 CINF Meritorious Award
On behalf of the Awards Committee of the Division of
Chemical Information (CINF) of ACS it gives me great
pleasure to congratulate Bonnie Lawlor and Joanne
Witiak for being named co-recipient of the prestigious
CINF Meritorious Service Award. The award is given to
members who made outstanding contributions to the
division. This is only the fifth time this award has been
given in the history of the division. The announcement
was made at the Executive Committee meeting at the
Spring ACS meeting in Atlanta.
Bonnie's contributions to the division started 30 years
ago when she joined the program committee in 1976,
then over the years with various positions including:
activities in the long-range planning and membership
committees; chair of nominations and publications
committees; editor of CIB and CINF News; as well as
activities in the executive committee with roles
including: secretary, chair, and most recently as a
councilor. Bonnie has also contributed directly to ACS
in numerous board positions and task forces.
Joanne's 20-year involvement with CINF began in 1986
when she was the co-chair of the Tri-Society
Symposium; she worked in various committees
including program, awards, and publications, as well as
in the executive committee as chair-elect, chair, alternate
councilor, and most recently as councilor. Joanne was
the co-author of the first "CINF Salary Survey", and she
has also served as the business manager of CIB.
A quote from Val Metanomski, the first recipient of the
award in 1992, describes best the contributions of the
"Bonnie and Joanne have been leaders of the Division
for several decades, serving in top executive positions
and in innumerable other assignments. They devoted
hours of their time to the Division, in fact, they have
been directly responsible for the current vibrant status of
the Division and for the exemplary fulfillment of the
Division's mission. Within the ACS governance, they
represented the Division with utmost vigor, contributing
enormously not only to the Division's high standing, but
also to the advancement of the chemical information
profession and of its practitioners."
