Mexico and Uruguay
join IUPAC as ANAO
Two new Associate National Adhering Organizations, from Mexico and
Uruguay, became part of the IUPAC family in October 2001. The Sociedad
Quimica de Mexico and the Chemistry Area of PEDECIBA (Programme
for the Development of Basic Sciences) will join 18 other organizations
that have ANAO status. By becoming ANAOs these two organizations provide
a point of contact for the chemists in their countries and the global
chemistry community represented by IUPAC. In addition, ANAOs can attend
Council meetings as Observers and IUPAC-sponsored Conferences can be
held in their countries. Many ANAOs represent communities of chemists
that are too small to become full members of IUPAC but who still feel
the need to be part of the global community of chemists. Other ANAOs
are expected to eventually become IUPAC National Adhering Organizations.

IUPAC has made the recruitment of new Adhering Organizations a focus
of its activities in the coming biennium. The Executive Committee at
its meeting in Brisbane created a Membership Development Committee with
Prof. Hitoshi Ohtaki
as Chairman. This Committee will actively recruit new members for IUPAC,
especially in Africa, Asia, and Latin America. The Union believes that
it is important for as many of the world's chemists as possible to be
a part of IUPAC.
