The Holiday Season and end of the year are rapidly approaching!
I thoroughly enjoyed my term as Chairman and found it to be very
active and rewarding. Let's look at what happened.
The Skolnik Award became international in scope with the
awardee being Dr. Robert Fugmann of Hoechst, Frankfurt, West
Germany. Additionally, Chemical and Engineering News carried the
award announcement for the first time.
* The Long Range Planning Committee was reactivated
(5 members, chaired by Bruno Vasta).
* The Membership Committee was expanded from only the
Assistant Secretary (Pete Rusch) to six - five additional
* Production of a videotape was initiated. The Executive Committee
and other Division members participated in the
development and editing of a rough draft script.
* The Program Committee, chaired by Val Metanomski, was
expanded from 13 to 15 members with academia, industry and
government being represented. David Johnson was named
* Karen Landsberg was appointed Cochairman with Ann Moffett
(former Chairman) of CINF's Constitution and Bylaws
* Herman Skolnik was appointed Chairman of Archives,
replacing Carleton C. Conrad who resigned.
* Marge Matthews was named Assistant Editor of the
Chemical Information Bulletin preparatory to becoming Editor
* Anne Backmann accepted appointment as Business Manager
for CIB. Ann Moffett had assumed this responsibility
mid-1982 due to Mary Last's relocation.
* Gabrielle Revesz was appointed as CINF's representative to
the CHEMTECH Editorial Advisory Board.
* Barbara Montague, Councilor, was elected to the Committee
* Carlos Bowman, Councilor and Chairman of the Committee
on Divisional Activities, was reappointed to this position for
* Peter Sorter was named as a full member of the Committee
on Chemical Abstracts Service.
* Barbara Prewitt continued membership on the Committee
on Publications and was named to the CAS Editorial Advisory
* David Johnson represented CINF at meetings of the Committee
on Professional Training. He and Barbara Prewitt communicated
frequently with the committee regarding CINF's
views on CPT's draft criteria for instructions in chemical information.
* Herman Skolnik resigned as Editor of the Journal of
Chemical Information and Computer Sciences. He was
honored for over 20 years of dedicated service at the Division
Luncheon in Kansas City with a plaque from CINF and a scroll
from the Society. Tom Isenhour was elected Editor. Carlos
Bowman was named Assistant Editor.
* At Kansas City CINF assisted ACS in hosting a five-member
delegation from the Chemical Industry and Engineering Society
* The Subdivision of Chemistry and the Law was granted probationary
status at Kansas City.
* CINF's bylaws were reviewed in depth by the ACS Committee
on Constitution and Bylaws. Suggested revisions as well
as other revisions were made to better accommodate a subdivision
and to update and restructure specific sections. The
Procedures Manual was also updated.
Program attendance at National ACS meetings, in spite of
site location and economic constraints, has been encouraging.
Las Vegas attendance was 475 - 25 more than in 1980 -
and Kansas City attendance was 630 (total registration just
under 6700). This attendance can be attributed largely to the
tremendous job done by Val Metanomski and his Program
Committee in their untiring development of high interest programs.
They deserve much commendation for their endless efforts.
CINF jointly sponsored symposia with eight other ACS
Divisions and two Board-Council Committees and cosponsored
with one Division. Chemical Abstracts Service
celebrated their 75th Anniversary by sponsoring a symposium
and reception in CINF's program at Kansas City.
The Trisociety Meeting, sponsored by ASIS, SLA, and CINF,
was held on October 17, 1982 at Chemical Abstracts Service in
Columbus, Ohio. A committee of eight members with all
societies represented were responsible for the program and
arrangements. This was the first such meeting. We hope they
