Events & Meetings
The YCC has expanded their annual Fun Run to both the Spring and Fall National Meetings so you can get out, see the city, and stretch your legs before a full day of technical and career programs.
Local programming is a major focus area of the YCC and is governed by individual Younger Chemist Committees within each local section. Activities at the local level are often a member's first exposure to ACS. These activities can assume a wide range of forms, from social networking events to educational seminars.
The scope of events held at regional meetings is quite diverse and can encompass the kinds of programs available within local sections as well as those provided at national meetings.
Please check with the organizer of the specific regional meetings you are interested in for more detailed information. Please contact us if you would like to secure our help in organizing younger chemist programs at a regional meeting.
Programming at national ACS meetings is a major focus area of the YCC. Because national meetings are always well attended, providing programs at national meetings allows us to reach a wide cross-section of our constituents in a highly effective manner. Thus, our programs at national meetings tend to be broader in scope than what might typically be found at a local section. When the needs of our constituents overlap with the focus of other committees or technical divisions within ACS, we often partner with these groups to organize events. Such events are designated as being co-sponsored by the YCC (e.g. in the list of technical programming).
