Reminder - Please Pay Your New York Local Section Voluntary Dues!

When your ACS membership renewal notice arrives this time, please be sure to renew but also don't forget to check the box for payment of New York Local Section Dues. While Local Section dues are a voluntary contribution - they are not required to maintain Section membership - they are however, critically important to the well being of the New York Section.

Your $15.00 Voluntary Dues directly fund events and services, including the prestigious annual Nichols Medal Symposium, undergraduate research symposia, topical groups, subgroups, and other excellent programs. With your financial commitment, these important programs can continue to grow and benefit all our members.

Thank you - the New York Section really appreciates your help!
