Chairman-ACS-Saudi Chapter (2023)

Dear SAICSC- ACS Members,
First of all, I would like to express my sincere appreciation to the board of directors for all the accomplishments achieved during the past year under the chairmanship of Mr. Talal AlGhamdi.

Last year we successfully organized the First Gulf Chemistry Association International Conference and Exhibition (GCA 2022) from 15 to 17 November 2022 at the Gulf Convention Center, Gulf Hotel in Manama, Kingdom of Bahrain, under the patronage of HE Shaikh Mohammed bin Khalifa Al-Khalifa, minister of oil of the Kingdom of Bahrain.
Six technical dinner meetings were conducted on various topics related to the industry, chemistry, innovation, technology, and IR 4.0. Specialized courses and workshops were organized as well.
In celebration of International Women in Science Day, our chapter celebrated with high school and college girls’ students. In partnership with KFUPM, “Chemathon,” an undergraduate research competition, was successfully organized.

Our movement will continue this year with several activities collaborating with our mother society ACS and local Saudi Societies.
I recommend you connect to our social media accounts to learn more about these programs. Also, to engage with our activities, you must join society by becoming a member.
Finally, I wish you all a year full of knowledge, development, and social interaction.
