As Alyson relates, “I joined the Agricultural and Food Chemistry Division (AGFD) of the American Chemical Society in 2001 after participating in serval meetings as a student. ACS is the largest scientific society in America and the meetings were intimidating. However, the members of the AGFD Division were very welcoming, fun and really encouraging of my scholarship. I knew I had found my home within ACS and joined the Division. The friendships that I developed with AGFD members are some of the most rewarding aspects of my career. I look forward to seeing my AGFD family twice a year at the National Meetings and working with them on the Executive Committee, of which I have been a member for 10+ years. I feel fortunate to be a part of such a wonderful society and look forward to my new roles within ACS and especially helping ACS improve public understanding and appreciation of chemistry’s contributions in their lives.”
