Pete Ludovice, a long-time ACS member and member of the ACS speakers service, will be in Denver on and performing his one-man show “Feel the Power of the Dork Side.” If you are one that would find a hilarious look at science and technology and their practitioners from a chemical engineering professor (who actually works on the application of humor to improve technical communication, education and innovation) then you might be interested to know about the half-price tickets available to local ACS members and their family and friends. Simply use the discount password “Boltzmann” at the ticket website to get 50% off tickets. Information and tickets are available at

I am delighted to get involved in the Local ACS activities and thank you for your support.
The Colorado Section is geographically a large section and as a result our activities are held at different locations which can make it challenging to reach all out to our members. In the following year I look forward to attending our activities and working to support our 2015 Chair Dr. Dan Branan.and Past Chair, Dr. Thomas H. Reilly. The other officers and I encourage all of you to come to the events sponsored by the Colorado Section – whether it is welcoming reception for younger members, local dinner meetings, senior lunches, or one of our regional seminar events.
We want to know what you would like to see offered in the future by the Colorado ACS Section. In addition, we need your assistance in indentifying and nominating fellow professors, industrial chemists, teachers, students and others for the range of ACS awards that are bestowed by the section. We also are the local section for the upcoming Denver ACS National Spring Meeting in March 2015 and have put out a call for volunteers for various events related to that meeting. Please consider participating as a section volunteer.
If you have suggestions for some future activities please contact email@example.com or any of the other current officers. Contact information can be found on this website at Officers/Councilors.
