Phil Kerr, the current AOCS Vice President and Deland Myers, a past AOCS President, were both in attendance. The representation of the PCP leadership in the AOCS leadership was a genuine point of pride for the Division.
In terms of Division business, Chibuike Udenigwe started the meeting by thanking the outgoing leadership and honoring the 2020 PCP Award Winners, including Keshun Liu, and the Best Paper Award Winners. Lamia L’Hocine then discussed the results of the PCP Division survey regarding the 2021 Annual Meeting Technical Program. The committee had a robust discussion that vetted topics, considered potential missing topics and which topics deserved serious consideration.
Finally, there was a call for volunteers for Session Chairs, Award Evaluators, Webinar Moderators, Mentors and more. If interested, please contact Chairperson Chibuike Udenigwe at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All in all, it was a wonderful meeting with lots of laughs and well wishes.
