About our Section:
The Lehigh Valley Section of the American Chemical Society was founded in 1894 and serves the Lehigh Valley Area including regions of Northeast Pennsylvania, Southern New York and Northwest New Jersey. ACS Local Sections promote public awareness of chemistry through involvement in the community and outreach programs and by working with students of chemistry and science. We hope to encourage an interest in the chemical sciences. The LVACS also provides a valuable forum for communication between members and serves as a platform for sharing scientific and educational information.
The LVACS is a volunteer organization dedicated to advancing chemistry and chemical engineering in the Valley. We work with industry and academia to educate the public about the benefits of our profession and science. Our section meets eight times per year at various locations within the section boundaries. For more information please see the section meeting links below. If you are interested in becoming a member of ACS, please go to http://www.acs.org for more information. If you are already an ACS member and would like to join our Local Section, please call or e-mail (see Local Section Officers information).
