Professor Rollie Meyers died on September 12 from a heart condition complicated by a recent bout with pneumonia. We will miss his participation in the Section and extend our condolences to his son, Keith, daughter, Adele, and his daughter-in-law Mary, and all his family and friends for their loss.
A postcard notification with the following message will be mailed to all CALACS members the week of Oct 17.
Please let us know if you do not receive by October 24. Here are copies of the documents.
“Election of the 2017 officers as well as a proposal
to amend the bylaws of the California Section of American Chemical Society will be via electronic
balloting using SurveyMonkey. You will receive an e-mail from SurveyMonkey by 31 October, 2016,
from which you can read the statement of all candidates, voting instructions, as well as cast your votes.
If you prefer to receive a paper ballot (including statement and voting instructions), please e-mail
firstname.lastname@example.org or call the California Section office at 510-351-9922, by 25 October, 2016, so that a
paper ballot can be mailed to you.”
The Section intends to conduct all future elections via a digital format. The cost savings to use email is significant.
Paper ballots will only be sent to those Members who request one.
