Message from the Chair: Sheila David, Ph.D.

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

I write this letter as 2022 and my term as DBC Chair winds down. It has been a crazy time to be Division Chair! The pandemic highlighted the usefulness of virtual connections and these are now an integral part of ACS meetings. The pandemic also prompted those of us in DBC leadership to take a look at our priorities and be creative about how we serve you, our members. Many ideas have been generated, and we have started to put some of these into motion. I am super excited that the new Chair, David Giedroc and Chair-Elect, Jennifer Heemstra, will be taking over Jan. 1, 2023, and using their innovative leadership skills to improve our Division! There are lots of things to update everyone about, so please read on!
