Special List Request

ACS offers each local section the opportunity to purchase mailing lists, delivered on lists or electronically, which may be used for Society-related purposes. There are two options for purchasing lists:

1. Special List Request

ACS provides special request lists that can be ordered throughout the year. With this option, you may request more detailed selection criteria for the lists.

To order specialized lists, please contact olsa@acs.org or division@acs.org. Allow a minimum of 10 business days for these lists to be produced and 3-5 days for the list(s) to be shipped to you.

2. Election Only List Request

Although eRosters of a local section’s current membership are provided monthly to local section officers, “Election Only” lists must be used for the mailing of ballots. Local section bylaws, which differ from section to section, specify how much lead time before an election to allow when requesting election only lists.

Why Do I Need to Order Election Only Lists?

  • Not every person whose name appears on the eRoster is eligible to vote because some persons have not paid their dues, or are Student Affiliates, etc.
  • Some names that do not appear on the monthly eRoster may be eligible to vote because certain members have requested that their names be removed from promotional mailings.

To order election only lists, please complete an Election Only order form. For more information on Election Only lists, contact the Office of Local Section Activities at (800) 227-5558, x4557 or olsa@acs.org.
