to the Virginia Local Section Home Page. We are located in the state of Virginia and are one of the 189 local sections of the American Chemical Society. ACS local sections promote public awareness of chemistry by being involved in community outreach programs and working with students of chemistry and science. The members of the Virginia Section hope to encourage an interest in the chemical sciences within Virginia. For a list of the counties and cities of Virginia that constitute our coverage area, click here.
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 the local section meetings, special events, and news.

The Virginia Section works with the community in a variety of ways and to continue this, we often ask our members to consider volunteering. Check out our Activities page to see some of the opportunties that are coming up. We also get requests from other organizations who need volunteers, these are often listed in our monthy Bulletin. Several requests for volunteers have been consistent through the years including judges for local and state science fairs, Virginia Academy of Science high school and undergraduate judges and of course our National Chemistry Week and Chemists Celebrate Earth Day events.
