The American Chemical Society (ACS) is the world’s largest scientific society and one of the world’s leading sources of authoritative scientific information. A nonprofit organization chartered by Congress, ACS is at the forefront of the evolving worldwide chemical enterprise and the premier professional home for chemists, chemical engineers, and related professions around the globe.
We are the Portland, Oregon local section of the American Chemical Society. The Portland Section covers counties in northwestern Oregon and southwestern Washington. We aim to provide engaging events for our community, fund scholarships to support students and teachers, and provide volunteer opportunities.
We are one of the three ACS sections that host the Linus Pauling Medal Award Symposium (the other two being the Puget Sound Section and the Oregon Section). The Pauling Medal is awarded annually with the symposium held in the fall. Oregon State University maintains an exhibit dedicated to Linus Pauling's work.
The Executive Committee meets once per month during the academic year, and once in the summer, to discuss Section events, fund allocations, and any other Section business. Minutes below have been summarized for public access; original copies of minutes are maintained by the Section.
