Get involved with the YCC

Interested in serving on an ACS Committee?

The National YCC is always looking to add fresh faces to our roster as current members 'age-off' or move on to other opportunities (typically 4-5 per year).

The online committee preference form for committee assignments will be open from late spring to early summer.

Committee Preference Form

There are instructions on this page explaining what to do - but please do include in your form specific reasons why YCC is the Committee you wish to serve on, or who you've spoken with about joining.

We also recommend you reach out to our leadership team to let us know of your interest. Send a brief email with your ACS experience, interest, and professional accomplishments, along with your resume to: info@ycc-acs.org.

Attending open YCC meetings and being an active member of a LSYCC is a great way to stand out!

Participate as a Younger Chemist Appointee

The YCC also helps to identify candidates for Technical Divisions and other Society Committees in need of younger member leaders. If you're interested, check back soon as we finalize details for applying for this program.

Join or start a Local Section (LSYCC)

If you are interested becoming involved in your LSYCC, then the first step is to contact your Local Section officers and express your interest. Great volunteers and new ideas are always welcome in any LSYCC. Though many ACS local sections have established LSYCCs, some have not yet developed their LSYCC. If you don't have an LSYCC, then consider taking the lead to start one in your own section!
