The Coblentz Society is a non-profit organization founded in 1954. Its purpose is to foster the understanding and application of vibrational spectroscopy. The Coblentz Society is a technical affiliate of the Society for Applied Spectroscopy.
Please join the Society for the Annual Membership Meeting at Pittcon. The meeting will be held on Wednesday, March 20, in the Room 303A of the Pennsylvania Convention Center, in Philadelphia. Lunch will be served as a choice of 3 entrees, served on a first-come-first-served basis.
The lunch will consist of a Caesar salad, three possible entrees (grilled chicken; pan-seared salmon; or roasted vegetable lasagna), rolls and butter, coffee, decaf and hot tea, and one of two possible desserts (either apple tart with caramel and creme anglaise, or panna cotta with macerated berries). Little cards will be available for each of the entrees and desserts, so as members arrive they will pick up their preference from the remaining options and sit. Service will be based on what cards members have in front of them.
The annual members meeting agenda will be lunch first, followed by the President's report (Myrick), followed by a welcome to the new President, Jim Rydzak, and a statement by Jim Rydzak. This agenda is subject to revision.
The Coblentz Society participates in several conferences where vibrational spectroscopy are featured.
