The mobile app has massive information. The following resources will help you navigate the app but categorize the thousands of presentations, events and activities that will take place over the course of 5 days.

Governance Event Types

  • OPEN. May be attended by any ACS member. At these sessions, members are encouraged to voice concerns, issue compliments, offer suggestions, express interest in, or raise questions about matters over which the committee has purview. The assumption is that participation is welcomed and will be orderly and courteous. Only committee members can vote.
  • CLOSED. The committee chair must declare any EXECUTIVE session CLOSED when confidential or sensitive personnel, financial , or legal matters of the society are discussed. At that point, only officially appointed/elected committee members, associates, consultants, staff liaisons, and the appointed Committee on Committees liaison shall remain in the session. Others may stay in the session at the discretion of the chair. Once these discussions have been completed, the committee should return to EXECUTIVE mode.
  • EXECUTIVE. Attendance and participation are limited to officially appointed/elected committee members, associates, advisers, consultants, staff liaisons, and the appointed Committee on Committees liaison. Liaisons from other groups and ex officio and elected councilors may attend; participation by these groups would be at the invitation of the chair. Only committee members can vote.)
  • During the open committee meetings, ACS members are given a chance to express their views on issues under consideration before these issues are acted on by the board or the council, or to bring up other subjects that deserve attention. Members are urged to examine the agenda and make known any opinions or ideas they may have. If you cannot attend the particular sessions involved, contact the ACS Secretary's Office.
