ACS Meeting Information for Undergraduates
Why Attend an ACS Meeting?
Whether you are honing your communication skills by presenting your research in one of the poster/oral sessions or are attending one of the many networking opportunities, ACS meetings provide an opportunity to learn and grow as a young professional.
Exploring a new city is one of the many benefits of attending an ACS National Meeting. National Meetings provide an opportunity to learn about many career paths that are possible with a degree in chemistry. These meetings are the highest concentration of professional chemists in the country. They are there to share their research with the chemistry community (you!) and expand their network. Networking with these seasoned professionals is one of the best ways a chemistry student can prepare for a successful career.
Regional meetings are an excellent way to meet with chemists and fellow students in your similar geographic area. Fostering relationships here can really help to lay the foundation for your professional network and could one day help you land a job!
Once you leave an ACS National or Regional Meeting, you’ll have plenty of advice and experiences to share with your student chapter or other chemistry students when your return to your campus.
