Frequently Asked Questions

How do I access the live video stream?
We will send you instructions to access the livestream 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 Large 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! 

Will I receive a physical box?
We want your event to be as easy as possible so we will post the same handouts, guides, and career resources found in the physical box for you to download from!  this “digital box” can be accessed here.

ACS Program-in-a-Box™ is an exclusive benefit for ACS Local Sections, Technical Divisions, and Student Chapters.

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!"
