Getting Setup as a Program Chair

In order for you to access your program you must be assigned to a program area by ACS Staff. Before you can be assigned access you must first log into PACS using your ACS ID. If you have ever signed in at then you already have an ACS ID. You can use the same ACS ID you use to log into the ACS Homepage to be assigned access to PACS as a program chair.

  1. Go to the PACS login page at
  2. Log in using your ACS ID

Once you have completed these steps contact ACS Staff at and they will set up your access to your division/committee. Once assigned as program chair you will have access to “My Dashboard” where you can begin to build your program.
