On September 19, ACS candidates for president-elect 2011 participated in an ACS Presidential Debate. The debate was recorded and interested members can hear the two candidates, Luis Echegoyen and Bassam Shakhashiri, discuss their visions for the future of the society including better communication of science to the public and how to better engage local chapters of the ACS. The debate took place via "Science Studio" a long-running radio show featuring interviews with practicing scientists. Keith Pannell and Russell Chianelli of the Department of Chemistry at the University of Texas, El Paso, hosted the debate. The recording of the debate can be accessed at www.sciencestudio.org.
