My ACS

My ACS Story

The ways that ACS members connect with and benefit from their Society are as varied as the disciplines of chemistry that members investigate and push forward. We know you have an interesting story and we want to hear it! We’ve heard from members like you who have sent in stories about making life-long connections, advancing careers, discovering the latest in science, and sharing a passion for chemistry with the next generation. My ACS Story shares personal stories from members who tell why they belong and how they benefit from being a part of ACS. Visit my.acs.org today to read about your fellow members’ experiences and share your own ACS story!
