About Us

About Us

We recently celebrated our 100th anniversary!

On December 8th, 1919, the Midland Section (Serving Midland, Bay City, Saginaw, Gratiot, and Isabella Counties) received its charter as a local section of the American Chemical Society. With more than 154,000 members, 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.

According to the National Charter (H.R. 7709, effective January 1, 1938) which incorporated the American Chemical Society, “The objects of the Midland Section include the following:

  • Encourage in the broadest and most liberal manner the advancement of chemistry in all its branches
  • Promote research in chemical science and industry
  • Improve the qualification and usefulness of chemists through high standards of professional ethics, education and attainments
  • Increase and diffuse chemical knowledge
  • Promote scientific interests and inquiry…”

To this end, the Midland Section has numerous programs not only for ACS members but also for students, educators, and the wider community enveloped by the counties included in the Section: Midland, Bay, Saginaw, Gratiot, and Isabella. Come and see what we’re doing and how you can be a part of it!
