“During the past two years I have had the pleasure of serving on the Membership Affairs Committee (MAC) chaired by Richard Cobb. Under his leadership important petitions on Membership Categories and Requirements, Society Affiliate Dues, and Multi-Year Dues were approved and the ACS Member Network was successfully launched. In addition, he has directed the preparation and implementation of a MAC Strategic Plan and Welcome Book and is currently working to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the MAC Executive Committee Meetings. Richard Cobb possesses a rare combination of enthusiasm, energy, creativity, vision, and dedication to the American Chemical Society that make him a natural ACS leader. I encourage you to elect him as your District I Director for which he is eminently qualified.”
