The ACS President’s Challenge

Every local section and technical division is encouraged to help grow and strengthen the ACS membership. By combining our home office recruitment efforts with the efforts of ACS sections and divisions, we will maximize our outreach to prospective members and get the most out of our global recruitment efforts.

In 2013 you recruited a total of 1,988 new members through the ACS President’s Challenge! Thank you to everyone who has participated.

Council members, section and division chairs as well as section and division members interested in participating in the 2014 ACS President’s Challenge should take advantage of ACS resources such as the membership recruitment toolkit and the following online resources.
