Please join us for our November Monthly meeting to honor the 2018 recipient of the James Flack Norris Award. The Award, the first national award for outstanding achievement in the teaching of chemistry, was established in 1950 by the Northeastern Section of the American Chemical Society to honor the memory of James Flack Norris, Professor of Chemistry at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and a teacher of great repute. It is awarded for Outstanding Achievement in the Teaching of Chemistry and pays tribute to outstanding contributions to the field of chemical education. We will also be honoring Jennifer Maclachan with the Northeastern Section of the ACS 2018 Volunteer of the Year Award.
