When the group met this past Tuesday (9/14), we discussed a few important points for the coming year.

We officers are interested in setting up a dinner/reception of some kind that involves chemistry students at SLU.  There was the prospect of getting together with tri-Beta on this also (maybe even tie in a “green sciences” theme for the event).  This idea is still in planning, as we need to work out the details and figure out how to best use our resources to make this happen.

We talked about dividing up some of the main responsibilities for this year.  First of those is our web page that we want to update and maintain throughout the year.  Marc Delaney volunteered to be our new tech guy for the web page.  Katie McHugh volunteered to update the “Molecule of the Month” on our site – i.e. some molecule that is relevant currently, or just something cool!  Megan Goodemote is going to help coordinate community service events for the year.

Also, we talked about advertising.  We need some folks who want to work with myself and Amber Latza to get the word out to campus about upcoming events, etc.  It really won’t be much work, especially when divided among several people.  The key for this year is to have consistent collaboration amongst our group.  And we can make some good things happen!

For the immediate future, we discussed the ACS’s annual roadside cleanup (small section of road on Rte 68, if I’m not mistaken).  It will be next Friday (9/24) at 4:30, and we will have a few people, including myself, driving for those who want a ride.  Based on the numbers who have already signed up, it looks like we will have a great turnout this year.  If you missed the meeting but would like to come next Friday, let myself of Andrew (aspflu07@stlawu.edu) know.

There will be more cool stuff to come, and more events to be planned!  We will meet again next Tuesday at 5 on 3rd floor of JHS.
