Senior Chemists

Senior Chemists

About / Overview

The role of the NJACS Senior Chemists Committee is to promote the interests of its silver circle members. A “silver” member is one who has valuable experience and knowledge, whether or not that person is retired.

The Mission of the SCC:

  • To share with ACS members of all ages a rich variety of personal experiences and expertise gained over many years of professional service.
  • To foster interest and participation in the science of chemistry through community outreach, especially in grades K-12.
  • To act as science advisers/ambassadors for the purpose of cultural exchange at home and abroad.
  • To provide senior ACS members with challenging, diverse, and enjoyable professional experiences that enable them to contribute to the cultural experiences of their communities.
  • To recommend policies that address issues of interest to senior chemists.

Silver Circle Activities:

  • Science café discussions of science
  • Community outreach during Earth Day Events, National Chemistry Week, etc.
  • Mentoring young chemists and acting as a resource for local teachers
  • Presenting or participating in career forums
  • Social activities, such as picnics, breakfasts, pot lucks, etc.
  • Field trips and tours
