    I would like to see the ACS presidents make more use of this webinar tool. I would like to hear about their vision for the ACS and chemistry in general, updates on how the ACS is doing(financially, goal tracking, changes, etc.) This could be a useful tool to get the membership more engaged. I have missed the last several national meetings, and no longer have any connection with the current administration. I miss this and would certainly like to hear what our current president wants to do in her term and where she thinks the ACS is headed.

    the webinars are a great benefit to members.

    As a graduate student in Chemistry and Applied Mathematics/Statistics, I have learned many useful applications of statistics to chemistry, such as fractional factorial designs and response surfaces. I’ve learned how to tell if data was/is analyzed properly. So far, I haven’t found any articles where I think the authors did a good job of designing and analyzing their experiments. I would love to see seminars that focus on specific topics of statistics that are applied to chemical data. You could start with the basics, t-tests, paired t-tests, etc. Then move up to regression models, factorial designs, fractional factorial designs, response surfaces, split plot designs, nested designs, survival analysis, logistic regression, etc. You could put those Webinars on line and charge non-ACS members a small fee and give it to your members for free. I would certainly look forward to better designed and analyzed journal articles.

    I am an undergraduate studying mathematics and physical chemistry. I have learned a great deal from watching past webinars. I have paid specific attention the webinars regarding employment and work related ideas as these are things not taught in school. Also those regarding how to think and learn like a scientist. My suggestion is that a different format be introduced so that users without access to a mac or PC would still be able to view and participate in live webinars. Also that webinars be saved in an open format usable by everyone. I deeply appreciate the information that these webinar make available to raising scientist.
