On December 5, 2013, CM&E will celebrate its 59 years of service by holding its 4th Annual M&A Outlook and the "2013 ACS NY CM&E Awards for Leadership." The event is a STEM education fundraiser.

His contributions in chemistry are evident through Braskem, which is the Americas’ leading thermoplastic resins producer, the 6th largest global petrochemical producer and the world’s top biopolymer maker.
The honoree for Lifetime Achievement is Jon M. Huntsman, entrepreneur and philanthropist. He is the Founder and Executive Chairman of Huntsman, a leading global chemical company which last year had revenues exceeding $11 billion and 12,000 employees. Mr. Huntsman, who has 9 children and 56 grandchilden, is one of the world's most generous givers.
Honorees: Peter and David DeLeeuw.
After very successful careers in world-class corporations, the entrepreneurial genes of Peter and David DeLeeuw prevailed and led to a track record of excellence in investments since 2001 when they founded Lion Chemical Capital.
In 2012 the Leadership Awards honorees were: Juan Pablo del Valle, Chairman of Mexichem, for outstanding global growth; Peter McCausland, Chairman of Airgas, for a lifetime of achievement; and Dr. John Televantos, Partner at Arsenal Capital, for distinction in private equity. See Videos!

STEM Education is Key to Global Prosperity, Security and Competitiveness
Technological innovation has been by far the primary driver of economic growth and security. However, the share of science, technology engineering and mathematics (STEM) Doctorates going to domestic students has gone from 75% in 1985 to less than half today. 15-year-olds nowadays rank 25th in math and 17th in science among OECD nations. CEOs cannot find enough STEM graduates. The US ranking in competitiveness went from 1st in 2008 down to 7th in 2012.
If US security falters so will the stability of the civilized world. The need to strengthen STEM education has never been more urgent. Global security and prosperity are at stake, yet of the $300 billion in annual donations only a minor part goes into grassroots activities that nurture children's love for science.
Please sponsor CM&E events. You will not just enhance your brand but also help support the local school reach of Chemistry, the development of tools for teachers, ACS scholarships and STEM programs which are fundamental global pillars for a brighter future. See Science Education
