Local Sections at the National Meeting

One way Local Sections help chemists stay active in their communities is through particpation in ACS National Meetings.

The host-city Local Section is an integral part of the National Meeting support team. Their volunteers staff the hospitality booth and assist meeting attendees by providing information on:

  • Places to see and eat in their city
  • National Meeting program and session locations
  • Tourist attractions
  • City directions
  • Promotion of Local Section activities
  • General set-up and support

The Local Section booth is equipped with computers and reference materials provided by the host city’s Convention & Visitors Bureau.
