As we come out of this pandemic, we must find the most effective and useful ways so that IUPAC fulfills its mission of contributing to the worldwide understanding and application of the chemical sciences to the betterment of humankind. New technologies provide us with the tools to achieve this goal in a very effective manner. For example, our next General Assembly, which will be held completely online, represents an unprecedented opportunity to engage with our NAOs in a way that will allow for discussing our most pressing needs in a new and effective way. We are already working on different options to have working groups meeting at different times in virtual rooms, so everybody can participate, raise any issues, and discuss how we can create a more effective, responsive, and agile organization. I encourage all delegates to our General Assembly to make full use of this opportunity. Also, I would like to invite the wider IUPAC community, including our members, Associated Organizations, Company Associates, and also our sister Chemical Societies, to let us know any ideas, things we must improve, or any opportunities for collaboration, so we can include them in our discussions during our next General Assembly.
