We Invite you to run for office!

ACSDFW – Local Section Elections

 Volunteers are elected to govern the DFW Local Section and interact with ACS National. Section officers join the Executive Committee (aka EC or ExCom) for the length of their terms. The DFW local section cannot carry out its mission of promoting chemistry and chemical professionals without the help of as many ACS members as possible. Serving the local section as an officer – or even as a candidate- is a great way to contribute to the community.

The new terms begin on January 1, 2020.
