Local Section Outreach Volunteer of the Year Awards

In an effort to recognize the immeasurable outreach efforts made by local section volunteers, the Committee of Community Activities (CCA) has established the Local Section Outreach Volunteer of the Year award program. Each local section has an opportunity to recognize one individual annually for demonstrating extraordinary outreach volunteer service within the section. Volunteers are only eligible to be recognized once every five years.

In recognition of their exemplary outreach efforts, ACS provides each participating local section with a certificate and gift to present to the awardee during a local section meeting or another event. The program and some awardees will also be recognized in an issue of Chemical & Engineering News (C&EN) later this year.

In 2017, ACS recognized 38 awardees. To read some of the wonderful contributions made by the individuals being acknowledged, follow the links below.
