What NCW Coordinators Do
ACS local sections and international chapters can designate one official National Chemistry Week Coordinator who serves as the point person for the rest of their section or chapter. NCW Coordinators perform or delegate the following responsibilities:
- Plan and support hands-on science events, community service events, illustrated poem contests, and any other type of events that celebrate NCW.
- Order and distribute free and discounted promotional merchandise available through the ACS Store.
- Spread the word about the goals and annual themes through communications, media relations, social media, partnerships, and other promotional channels.
- Report the impact of all section or chapter activities including any school group, industry, or section/chapter activities that celebrate NCW.
ACS Student Chapters and ChemClubs are encouraged to plan activities for NCW. Reach out to your local NCW Coordinator to establish a partnership and see how you can be involved!
