Welcome to SERMACS 2022
SOUTHEASTERN REGIONAL MEETING
AMERICAN CHEMICAL SOCIETY
OCTOBER 19-22, 2022 – SAN JUAN, PUERTO RICO
An Important Note on Hurricane Fiona
On Sunday, September 18, Hurricane Fiona made landfall in southwestern Puerto Rico, causing considerable flooding and damage in the southern and central areas. Our thoughts and prayers are with our fellow Puerto Rico residents during this challenging time as we begin the recovery process following Fiona’s adverse effects.
As the impacted areas continue to be assessed by local authorities, the San Juan Metropolitan area and most of northern Puerto Rico were less affected. At this time, we have not made any changes to the Southeastern Regional Meeting planned for mid-October. We will continue SERMACS 2022 as scheduled. Although we do not foresee any changes, we will monitor the situation closely and provide an update if necessary.
If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to me or any of the other SERMACS 2022 committee members.

CHEMISTRY TRANSCENDING BOUNDARIES FOR A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE.
The Puerto Rico Section of the American Chemical Society is hosting the 73rd Southeastern Regional ACS meeting (SERMACS 2022), which will be held on October 19-22, 2022 in beautiful San Juan, Puerto Rico. As noted, the theme of the meeting is “CHEMISTRY TRANSCENDING BOUNDARIES FOR A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE”. Our Local Section last hosted this meeting in 2009 with a record number of attendees and this year we are hoping to establish a new record. SERMACS 2022 will be an international event that we are promoting heavily both in the United States and all over Latin America. The ACS is the world’s largest scientific association with a membership of more than 154,000 chemists, chemical engineers, and others in related professions. Our region encompasses Virginia, Kentucky, and all points south of these states and east of the Mississippi River, including Puerto Rico. We invite you to explore this website for information, news and updates of this historic event.
PRCC is the largest and most technologically advanced meeting facility in the region. It is also one of the greenest buildings in Puerto Rico and the Caribbean.
