GOVERNMENT AFFAIRS

ACS President Eli M. Pearce presents a ChemLuminary Award to Marinda Wu from the California Section.

THE ACS PRESIDENT'S Award for Local Section Government Affairs was presented to the California Section in recognition of outstanding efforts to increase member involvement in government affairs and advance public policy to benefit science and society. The section participated in the ACS Contact Congress Week. With help from the ACS Office of Legislative & Government Affairs, California Rep. Lynn Woolsey (D) was invited to speak at a section program to address how federal research and development impacts the chemical enterprise and the outlook for basic research. Representatives of the California Section also visited Rep. Nancy Pelosi's (D) San Francisco office to discuss science education policy, including teacher training. In addition, the section raised member awareness and encouraged members to become more active in science policy issues through its monthly newsletter.
