Multidisciplinary Program Planning Group (MPPG)

The Multidisciplinary Program Planning Group (MPPG) identifies and selects national meeting themes to promote collaborative, multidisciplinary, Society-wide programming for ACS National meetings.  This multidisciplinary programming reflects the multidisciplinary nature of the modern scientific enterprise, breaks down barriers to collaboration, and provides opportunities for outreach to nascent and existing communities of scientists who are practicing chemistry.

MPPG has representatives from nearly all technical divisions, as well as representatives from programming committees.
