Section Elections

This year, we will be hosting elections for chair-elect, treasurer, and secretary. The election will begin on October 16th, 2018. Full details on the election and information on the candidates are given on this page.

National Chemistry Week

As in previous years, we will be hosting our event at the Centerville Library, 111 W Spring Valley Pike, Centerville, OH, on Saturday, October 27th. In addition, we will be co-hosting an event at the Boonshoft Museum of Discovery on the weekend of October 20-21.

This year's events will feature hands-on experiments for all ages that will illustrate concepts associated with the theme "Chemistry is Out of This World".

We are also looking for volunteers who will help present these demonstrations.

For further details on these events, please see our National Chemistry Week page.

Membership Meeting

In an annual tradition, we will host our Membership Meeting on Thursday November 15, 2018 at the Wellington Grille, 2450 Dayton Xenia Road, Beavercreek, OH 45434. The social hour with a cash bar will start at 6:00 pm with dinner following at 7:00 pm.

This year we have one 50 year honoree (Dr. Paul Seybold). Each honoree will be invited to give a short talk on what attracted them to chemistry and the careers they had as a chemist. The section would also like to recognize the various volunteers who have contributed their time to the Section this year to participate.
