Message from Joint-Board Council Committee on Chemical Abstracts Service (CCAS)

July 14th, 2013 by pthomas2

The ACS Joint Board-Council Committee on CAS (CCAS), an ACS governance committee charged with acting as an information conduit between the ACS membership and CAS management, continues to seek your input! The committee meets twice annually, in conjunction with the ACS National Meetings, and communicates via e-mail between meetings. CCAS will meet in closed session prior to the ACS National Meeting, on Friday, September 6, 2013. If you have any issues that you would like raised either at or after this meeting, please contact a member of the committee by phone or e-mail. A list of committee members appears at http://portal.acs.org/portal/PublicWebSite/about/governance/committees/cas/CNBP_030396. Someone will respond to your query as soon as possible.

Issues raised will be brought to the attention of CAS management, and responses will be disseminated to the appropriate individuals or groups as quickly as possible. Please remember that you are encouraged to contact a member of CCAS with feedback at any time, regardless of whether or not a formal call has been posted. We have also established a group on the ACS Network, https://communities.acs.org/groups/chemical-abstracts-service-committee, where you can post questions and read answers. CCAS now has a page on Facebook too.

Thanks very much!

Chuck Huber, for CCAS
