SCALACS Electronic Election

The Southern California Section is holding their first electronic election this year! The goal is to increase participation in our election process. By next week, Southern California members will receive an email from elections@vote-now.com that will have your ballot information. We ask that you either turn off your spam filter or look for the ballot in case it ends up in your junk mail.

You will be voting for one Chair, one Secretary/Treasurer, three Members at Large and two Councilors. The electronic ballot will prompt you through all sections. There will be a link to the biographies and statements for you to make your decisions. There will also be a link at the end of the ballot for our Member Survey. We hope you will take a moment to fill it out. We will use the information to try to provide programming that our members will enjoy.

If you do not have email or if your email bounces, a post card will be sent to your postal address with information on how to vote online or how to request a paper ballot.

It is our hope that electronic voting will allow more members to vote and participate in our election. We hope you will take advantage of this historic opportunity!

Welcome to the Southern California Section!

This is the website of the Southern California Section of the American Chemical Society. Throughout the year, we have lots of activities posted on this website (see the side bar for upcoming events!) and also printed in our monthly magazine, SCALACS. Please browse our website and see the kinds of events we have for chemists from all walks of life – from academia to industrial chemists.

We have dinner meetings each month throughout the academic year where you can hobnob with other chemists (interesting speakers and great food!). Students can attend the dinner meetings for half the published price with valid ID. If you would like to hear the speaker at a dinner meeting without attending the dinner, just let Nancy Paradiso in the Section Office (310 327-1216 or office-at-scalacs-dot-org) know so we can reserve you a seat. We also have great outreach programs such as National Chemistry Week, Chemists Celebrate Earth Day and the High School Olympiad to share chemistry with upcoming students. We’re always looking for volunteers to help with these important programs.

Members are also invited to attend our Executive Committee Meetings. This is a great way to see our Section governance in action! The Executive Committee Meetings are held the first Wednesday of each month (excluding December, June, July and August) at 7:30 p.m. The meetings are held at the Mount St. Mary’s Doheny campus. Please call Nancy at the Section Office for directions and to let her know that you are attending.

We hope to see you soon at an upcoming meeting or volunteering at an outreach event!
