ACS Member Support

ACS is committed to providing support to our members and member communities in these uncertain times. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the Society has introduced new or expanded some of its existing benefits to meet the changing needs of our members.

Member Dues Waiver

During this COVID-19 crisis, we are offering renewing members a one-year waiver on your unpaid national dues if you’ve suffered hardships due to the pandemic. If you have become unemployed, furloughed, have your hours or wages reduced, or are facing illness or family care responsibilities, please contact Member Services at service@acs.org or via phone at 1-800-333-9511. If you are a member outside the United States, please call 1-614-447-3776.
