CAG Recognition from SETAC NA President

Posted By Alan J. Jones, Friday, March 6, 2015

I would like to submit the following letter sent to me by SETAC NA President Mary Reiley.  I continue to be very proud of our advisory group's commitment to the society and the progress that we have made in such a short time.  



Dear Alan, Dan, and all of the members of the SETAC-NA Chemistry Advisory Group,

I want to thank you personally and on behalf of the SNA Board of Directors for all the SETAC NA Chemistry Advisory Group (CAG) accomplished in 2014 and the leadership you have provided to make it happen. 

The SETAC NA Board of Directors greatly appreciates the important work of the SNA CAG and we would like to commend you for several notable successes, including:

·       Bringing in Dr. Ching-Hua Huang of Georgia Tech as this year's SETAC New Chemist.  My understanding is that both she and her students were very impressed with the Vancouver meeting, and particularly the CAG's programming there.  It's important for SNA to continue to recruit and retain new members, and these efforts aid immensely in that goal.

·       Running a successful SETAC-ACS Student Exchange Award.  The 2013 winner, Dr. Rachel Marek of the University of Iowa, is an excellent representative to our sister society, to which we continue to build linkages for mutual benefit.

·       Holding two excellent and well-attended CAG-sponsored sessions at the Vancouver meeting.  We particularly endorse the focus on novel and trans-disciplinary approaches.

·       Continuing work with the Global Horizon Scanning Project, which will provide new directions for our Society and disciplines.

·       Serving the entire Society with the effort to take the CAG from a North America-only unit, to the Global level.

The members of the SNA Board of Directors recognize and applaud each of you in your extraordinary volunteer efforts and successes as part of the CAG in 2014.
