Welcome

Welcome to the Virginia Local Section Home Page.  On April 9th, 1915 the Virginia Section was established by the American Chemical Society.  Our section is located in Virginia and is one of the 184 local sections of the American Chemical Society, the world’s largest scientific society.  For a list of the counties and cities of Virginia that constitute our section, click here.  

The Virginia Local Section serves the community by advancing chemistry and communicating its impact on people’s lives. Our Mission is to inspire, educate, develop, and connect Virginia chemists and the community for the benefit of Earth and its people.

The section fulfills its mission by promoting public awareness of chemistry, being involved in community outreach programs and working with chemistry students and STEM programs to enhance scientific awareness and communicate the value of chemistry in our society.  We provide networking opportunities and mentoring experiences to connect chemists working in government, academics and industry to strengthen and serve the local chemistry community.  The Virginia Section has a rich history of many activities and events it has supported to promote the chemical sciences throughout the past 100 years.  We need your passion and dedication to drive success for the next 100 years.

The publications of the Virginia Section are available within “The Bulletin” menu item.  The Bulletin is published monthly from September through April each year.  The Bulletin is the main publication for local sections meetings, special events and news.  

The executive officers and committees chairs contact information are listed in the menu item, Executive Committee.  The Virginia Section has several active committees that bring chemistry to the community. The general description of the focus of each committee is posted under the Committees menu item. Help the Virginia Section by serving on one of our committees or volunteering. Engagement provides opportunities for networking and development. To get more information, volunteer your services, or make suggestions, contact the Chair of the section, Colleen Taylor, at  (804) 524-5481; ChairVAsectionACS@gmail.com .   If you are interested in becoming a member of the Virginia Section of the ACS, click here for more information.
