For District III Director: Teri Quinn Gray – as seen in Chemical & Engineering News
My relationship with ACS ranges from the very personal to sometimes tangential, perhaps exactly the rapport needed at different stages of my career. The key point being, a relationship with ACS and our members can matter from both a personal and professional point of view when it comes to thriving in a highly dynamic global marketplace. I know ACS, not because I was looking for the Society but because the Society was looking for me (in Jackson, MS of all places!).
