MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIRMAN
It's 1985 and I am pleased to assume my duties as Chairman of the Division of Chemical Information. I am
grateful for the honor given to me and would like to share with you some thoughts about the Division and
the year ahead.
Our immediate past-Chairman, Ralph O'Dette, has our thanks for his conscientious leadership during
1984. Like my predecessors, I find that we have an active, healthy Division with many dedicated members
contributing their services most effectively. By the nature of our voluntary affiliation with the Division, its
success is directly dependent on the participation of as many members as possible. In the year ahead there
are three areas of participation that I would like for each of you to consider. These are: education, membership,
Our Education Committee, under the leadership of Arlene Sommerville, has greatly expanded both the
awareness of the Division's activities and the materials that can be used to assist educators. You can become
a part of this effort by contributing your time and talents to the committee or by actively engaging in
the educational process. The best way to do this s to give a course on chemical information at a local college
or university or in your own organization. Another way is to be a guest lecturer or make some other presentation
to a group that will benefit from knowing about the Division of Chemical Information.
The significance of our Division would be very small without the extraordinary efforts of the Program
Committee and its present Chairman, David Johnson. Both the Miami Beach and Chicago meetings promise
to have the kind of program you would expect from planning that is advanced and attuned to developments
in chemical information. Your participation through attendance, presentations, or membership on
the Program Committee is strongly encouraged.
In 1984 the ACS released a detailed demographic study of the Society and its Divisions. Our Division was
characterized by a significantly higher mean age of members than the ACS in total. As our influence and activities
expand we need to include a growing number of information chemists in the Division. Your participation
in our Division's program and education activities as well as your active recruitment of new members
can help assure this.
