Membership-related activities continue as a major focus for the Division this year.
1. The first issue of the Newsletter was published early this year. The addition of two Newsletter issues to
supplement the Bulletin should offer more timely news and enhance communication between members.
Volunteers to serve as regional reporters and as occasional columnists are still needed. Contact
Ann Moffett, Chair of the new Publications Committee, DuPont Pharmaceuticals, Barley Mill Plaza,
P26/1370, Wilmington, DE 19898 (tel. 302-992-4713)
2. The Careers in Chemical Information Subcommittee (of the Education Committee) seeks volunteers interested
in promoting chemical information as a career and in aiding career development. Contact David Saari, Miles
Laboratories Inc., PO Box 40, Elkhart, IN 46515. (tel. 219-262-6470)
3. Planning for the Sunday evening members' reception in Toronto is in full swing. Take advantage of this
opportunity to meet new and old Division friends; pick up a name badge holder and meeting booklet; review
the Division program; and aquire information about Toronto restaurants, shopping, and tourist attractions.
Complimentary refreshments will be provided.
4. Beginning plans for a similar members' reception on Sunday evening for the Los Angeles meeting in September.
This time, however, COD will be in effect.
These Sunday evening receptions scheduled for Toronto (complimentary refreshments) and Los Angeles (COD
for drinks) are new this year. Let us know if you enjoy them!
Other activities that evolved from the 1987 planning discussions include:
1. Improving the professional image of the information professional and the image of the Division within ACS
and in relation to the other chemical information societies within the U.S. and internationally.
The new Public Relations Committee, chaired by Carol Duane will focus on these issues. Carol welcomes
Committee volunteers. (Ms. Carol Duane, Ricerca Information Services, Ricerca Inc., PO Box 2000, Painesville,
OH 44077, tel. 216-357-3471).
The Division plans for participating in the next Tri-Society Symposium and the initial planning for the Second
International Conference on Chemical Information also support this objective.
2. Protecting the free flow of information.
The new Legislative Issues Committee will monitor information-related legal issues and identify those issues
that required action. The Committee will take the initiative to act as appropriate and serve as a resource for
other agencies, e.g., the ACS Governmental Affairs Committee. Murray Rosenberg will lead this effort as
Committee Chairman (Mr. Murray D. Rosenberg, Philip Morris Research Center, PO Box 26583, Richmond,
3. Continuing to upgrade the quantity and quality of Chemical information instruction and to widen recognition
of the crucial importance of effective use of chemical information by the professional chemist.
The Education Committee, under the leadership of its new Chairman, Mary Ann Palma, seeks to implement
these objectives. Volunteers are welcome. Faculty and librarians from academic institutions are especially
needed (Ms. Mary Ann Palma, 29 W. 110 Old Farm Lane, Warrenville, IL 60555).
4. Establishing a reporting mechanism that will strengthen planning and implementation of Divisional programs
and that will ensure continuity between out-going and in-coming committee chairmen.
