Volunteer Needed to Lead the Younger Chemists Committee (YCC)

The American Chemical Society’s Younger Chemists Committee (YCC) was formed to identify the needs and concerns of young chemists and to develop programs responsive to their needs. YCC is driven by three goals:

  1. Make the ACS relevant to younger chemists
  2. Increase the involvement of younger chemists in the ACS at all levels
  3. Develop mechanisms to integrate younger chemists into the profession

The Rochester Section is looking for someone to lead this effort.

Younger Chemist Leadership Development Award

Each year, the YCC organizes a Leadership Development Workshop that is geared toward younger chemists and is held in conjunction with the ACS Annual Leaders' Conference as part of the ACS Leadership Development system.  The YCC grants 15 Younger Chemist Leadership Development Awards that support ACS members who are less than 35 years of age to travel to and participate in the annual ACS Leadership Institute and the Leadership Development Workshop.

Awards are made on the basis of scientific merit and cover the registration fee, transportation, lodging, and meals associated with attending the Younger Chemist Leadership Development Workshop and the ACS Leadership Institute

Deadline: All application material must be received by November 1st for consideration.
