MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIRMAN
1979 is rushing toward us at, seemingly, an accelerated pace. And, at a like pace, my term as Division Chairman
is rushing to a conclusion. In January 1978, the long twelve months ahead seemed ample time for some
significant accomplishments. Now the short months have flown, evaporated, and no miracles have been
wrought! But with your hard work and strong support some things have been achieved-a strengthened Program
Committee organization; mechanisms for closer cooperation between the program planning group and the Long
Range Planning and the Liason Committees; revised Bylaws which will, among other things, permit affiliation
with AFIPS and other technical organizations; an updated Membership brochure and application form; a revised
and updated Procedures Manual (in progress); an expanded Chemical Information Bulletin; an increased
membership (we have now passed-barely-the 1000 mark); representation on the ChemTech editorial advisory
board; and joint programs during the year with at least five other Society Divisions, three for the first time. But
these things only form groundwork for our real goals-richer, more significant programs, increased interaction
with other Society Divisions, and, above all, greater membership involvement.
Three very important avenues through which each of us can contribute to this last goal are now or soon will be
1. The about-to-be-launched membership needs survey,
2. The annual call for nominations for the offices of Chairman-elect, Secretary, Councilor and Alternate
3. The annual plea for volunteers for Committee service, either as chairmen or members.
A frank and considered response to the survey should furnish guidelines for our Division's growth, not merely
in size, but, more importantly, in professional development for each of its members. And your generous response
to the plea for personnel-either for elected office or committee service-should provide the people you deem
best qualified to implement this growth. (Don't let false modesty prevent you from submitting your own name!)
It has been truly a privilege and a treasured honor to have had the opportunity to serve as Division Chairman
and to experience, first-hand, the unstinting support and cooperation of Division, Society and Society Staff
members. My warmest thanks to each of you!
And now on to 1979, Honolulu, and ...
Happy New Year!
Mary H Rcsock, Chairman
Alternate Councilor, 1979-1981
