The ACS Green Chemistry Institute® (ACS GCI) is excited to announce its 19th Annual Green Chemistry & Engineering (GC&E) Conference taking place from July 14-16, 2015, at the Bethesda North Marriott Hotel and Conference Center in North Bethesda, MD. This year’s theme is "Catalyzing Innovation: Smarter Research, Greener Design, Better World" and will highlight green chemistry and engineering’s role in catalyzing innovation. This exciting conference will offer three days of dynamic program-ming and will provide a host of volunteer opportunities for local green chemistry enthusiasts!
Accordingly, ACS GCI is calling all volunteers and would like for you to be a part of the action! As a conference volunteer, we will ask you to work four hours and you will receive access to the general conference proceedings for the rest of the day you volunteer. Assistance is needed in the following areas: Onsite conference registration, technical sessions, roundtable reception, hybrid meeting session, and more. For more information, please visit www.gcande.org. Teamwork makes the dream work!
The American Chemistry Society established the National Historic Chemical Landmarks program in 1992 to enhance public appreciation for the contributions of the chemical sciences to modern life in the United States and to encourage a sense of pride in their practitioners. The program does this by recognizing seminal achievements in the chemical sciences, recording their histories, and providing information and resources about Landmark achievements.
ReSET is a non-profit organization that places volunteer scientists and engineers in Washington DC area elementary school classrooms to lead students in science and math experiments. Our goal is to show students that science and math learning is exciting and enjoyable, with the long term objective of buiiding America's science and engineering workforce of the future. We are in 25 schools in DC, Maryland and Virginia, and would like to reach more students by increasing our number of volunteers. We would welcome the opportunity to work ACS' Washington Local Section to make your D.C. area members aware of volunteer opportunities.
