- Come join us at the Continuity Dinner! 25 October 2019
The December Board of Directors meeting, also known as the Continuity Dinner, is a fancier than usual affair to celebrate the year’s achievements, recognize certain members, announce the Distinguished Service Award (conferred in March), and pass the gavel to the incoming section officers. Plus, there is the Henry Godt Memorial Lecture, given by a surprise speaker, which lightly and briefly (we promise: briefly) recaps the year-in-chemistry-in-St-Louis. If you’re not a regular ACS meeting attendee, come renew or create acquaintances.
There will also be a General Meeting of the Section, but business will be light. And there are almost always some new and old members whom we see only at this event. So come!
When: Thursday, December 12
Where: Robust in Webter Groves Public Parking is available as part of the Straubs lot and also a public lot to the west next to Froyo.
Schedule of events:
6:30 PM Social hour with appetizers, cash bar
7:00 PM Meeting and Dinner
Please register by Dec 9th by contacting Suzy Hartmann (email@example.com)
