2019
Fall Newsletter

"POLY led scientific discussion at the forefront of international challenges in Chemistry and Water at the San Diego National Meeting, with symposia including Characterization of Plastics in Aquatic Environments; Eco-Friendly Polymerization; Polymeric Materials for Water Purification; and the DSM Graduate Student Award symposium focused on Sustainability. The spring 2020 national meeting is filled with exciting programming on the theme of Macromolecular Chemistry: The Second Century."

(Morgan, p.1)

Spring Newsletter

"POLY strives to provide the professional platform for engaging in discussion of scientific advances, finding research collaborators, recruiting, being recruited, educating, learning,

and publicizing your own research.  It also provides the opportunity to network, make new friends, and have some fun!"

2018
Fall Newsletter

"An exciting honor was POLY being presented with an ACS ChemLuminary Award for
outstanding collaboration in 2017 between a Local Section (New York) and a Technical
Division for the symposium, "Journey to Mars." The ceremony was opened by ACS
President Peter Dorhout and the keynote address was presented by Carol Duane,
recipient of the 2018 Award for Volunteer Service to the American Chemical Society. It
was truly amazing to see examples of collaboration and accomplishment across ACS."

(Gerbi, p. 1)

Spring Newsletter

"During the Winter Executive Committee Planning Meeting in San Antonio, POLY leadership participated in an ACS facilitated Strategic Planning Workshop to review the POLY mission and vision and to craft five-year goals and strategies to keep POLY relevant and focused. Three main goals were identified. Visit the POLY website to access the 2018 POLY Strategic Plan. I encourage you to contact the initiative champions to become more involved with your Division." (Gerbi, p. 1)
