GOVERNANCE MEETINGS BOARD & COUNCIL MEETINGS ACS BOARD OF DIRECTORS. The ACS Board of Directors meeting, open to members who wish to participate, will be held in the San Diego Convention Center, Room 20D from noon to 1:00 PM on Sunday, March 13. ACS COUNCIL. The ACS Council meet- ing will begin at 8:00 AM, Wednesday, March 16, at the San Diego Hilton Bay- front. The meeting will be preceded by a continental breakfast for councilors beginning at 7:00 AM. Councilors are asked to check in beginning at 7:00 AM and proceed to the breakfast area, keeping in mind that the meeting starts promptly at 8:00 AM. Space will be avail- able for ACS members and nonmembers to observe the council in action. We hope that many will take advantage of this opportunity to learn firsthand of the society's operation. Alternate councilors and division and local section officers are particularly urged to attend.

May be attended by any ACS member. At these sessions, members are encouraged to voice concerns, issue compliments, offer suggestions, express interest in, or raise questions about mat- ters over which the committee has pur- view. The assumption is that participa- tion is welcomed and will be orderly and courteous. Only committee members can vote. EXECUTIVE. Attendance and participa- tion are limited to officially appointed/ elected committee members, associ- ates, advisers, consultants, staff liai- sons, and the appointed Committee on Committees liaison. Liaisons from other groups and both ex officio and elected councilors may attend; active participa- tion by these groups would be at the invitation of the chair. Only committee members can vote. CLOSED. The committee chair must declare any EXECUTIVE session CLOSED when confidential or sensitive personnel, financial, or legal matters of the soci- ety are discussed. At that point, only officially appointed/elected committee members, associates, consultants, staff liaisons, and the appointed Committee on Committees liaison shall remain in the session. Others may stay in the ses- sion at the discretion of the chair. Once these discussions have been completed, the committee should return to EXECU- TIVE mode. During the open and executive commit- tee meetings, ACS members are given a chance to express their views on issues under consideration before these issues are acted on by the board or the coun- cil, or to bring up other subjects that deserve attention. Members are urged to examine the agenda and make known any opinions or ideas they may have. If you cannot attend the particular ses- sions involved, write to the officers listed or ask someone attending the session to speak on your behalf. For further infor- mation, contact the officers listed. BUDGET & FINANCE Kristen M.
