In my last message I wish to express my deep appreciation for the support I have received from the Divisional
Executive Committee, from the chairmen and members of all the other Committees, and from the membership
In 1987, we participated fully in both ACS National Meetings, in several ACS Regional Meetings, and in the First
International Conference on Chemical Structures in the Netherlands. The highlight of our program at the Fall National
Meeting in New Orleans was the presentation of the 1987 Herman Skolnik Award to Dr. William Theilheimer,
followed by a symposium on chemical reaction documentation.
The Executive Committee devoted two special planning sessions to identifying the long-range strategic issues
and to developing an action plan to deal with these issues. This was duly reported to the members at the Divisional
Business Meeting in New Orleans on August 31, 1987.
A Mission statement for the Division has been worked out as follows:
The Division of Chemical Information of the American Chemical Society is committed to providing a forum for
the exchange of information and expertise among the generators, developers, providers, and users of chemical
information worldwide through innovative, quality programs and publications, and through opportunities for
career development and recognition of excellence.
The goals and objective supporting the Mission are being formalized. They will addess such vital issues as:
a. Promoting and assisting the formation of chemical-information Topical Groups in the ACS Local
b. Participating in the technical programs of the ACS Regional Meetings;
c. Promoting contact at the ACS National Meeting among members and between members and Divisional
d. Cosponsoring interdivisional, intersociety, and international symposia and meetings;
e. Communicating with members through additional publications;
f. Promoting research and development in chemical-information science and technology;
g. Monitoring legal and legislative issues, and taking appropriate stands;
h. Promoting career development;
i. Establishing a reporting mechanism for all such tasks by the identification of milestones and measurement
The Division is fortunate in having a strong leadership for 1988 and beyond. I am sure that most of the tasks planned
will be initiated and many will be implemented. My best wishes for a successful year go the the 1988 Divisional Team!
