You're Bust, Let ACS plan your next event for free! ACS Program In A Box

You will receive an email from asking you to confirm your shipping address and other information.  You must reply to this email by Friday, February 9th, 2018 to receive your physical box.*  Groups that do not reply to confirm their shipping address by this date may not receive a box in time for the live event.

Frequently Asked Questions

When will I receive my Box?
Boxes will ship to groups beginning early February 2018.  You should receive your box at least a week before the live event, but likely earlier!

What will be in the box?
The box will contain raffle prizes, handouts for your attendees, resources to help you plan your event and ACS professional development resources! We might not be able to send enough materials for everyone in your group but digital templates can be accessed here

How do I access the live video stream?
We will send you instructions to access the livestream in early February once we have completed testing a new and improved system for 2018.

What can I do to prepare before then?
Reserve a room with:

  1. Fast internet connection (ethernet preferred over wifi!).
  2. Dedicated computer to access the livestream
  3. Projector or High-Definition TV
  4. Loud speakers (reach the back row!) that work with your computer and projector/TV.

Advertise!  Use social media, download our professionally designed flyers, make a newsletter…get creative!

ACS Program-in-a-Box™ is an exclusive benefit for ACS Local Sections, Technical Divisions, and Student Chapters. Due to international shipping restrictions, physical box kits can be sent to the United States, Canada, and US territories. Please contact us ( if you would like to receive an ACS Program-in-a-Box™ from outside these shipping locations.


Not an ACS Local Section, Technical Division, or Student Chapter?  That’s okay! We want chemists to join the party and connect with each other. We’ll send you a “digital box” to download handouts included in the physical box for you to print and share with your attendees. We can also help you use ACS Program-in-a-Box™ to start your Student Chapter, or get your Local Section or Student Chapter back into an active status, so next time you’ll see an ACS Program-in-a-Box™ on your doorstep!"
