Multidisciplinary Program Planning Group (MPPG)
The Multidisciplinary Program Planning Group (MPPG) identifies and selects national meeting themes to promote collaborative, multidisciplinary, Society-wide programming at ACS National Meetings. This multidisciplinary programming reflects the 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 and the national meeting organizers are looking for motivated individuals to join our group to brainstorm, plan, and execute multidisciplinary programming at the ACS National Meetings. View the current roster of MPPG representatives, browse the upcoming meeting themes to learn about each prospectus, and contact the organizers about how to get involved.
