Rochester Local Section Award for Volunteer Service to the American Chemical Society
Purpose: To recognize significant volunteer efforts of individuals who have served the Rochester Local Section of the American Chemical Society, contributing significantly to the goals and objectives of the Society through their Local Activities.
Eligibility: A nominee must be:
- a member of the American Chemical Society residing in the Rochester Local Section 6 county region, and
- a member who has made significant contributions to the Rochester Region of the American Chemical Society.
Because the winner of this Local Section award can be nominated for the Northeast Region Volunteerism Award (in the year following receipt of this award) and, potentially, for the National ACS Volunteerism Award, it is helpful when the Local Section winner is recognized for a variety of activities including, but not limited to, the initiation or sponsorship of a singular endeavor or exemplary leadership in the Local Section, Region and on the National Level.
