Help Us Shape ACS Governance for the 21st Century and Beyond

The Task Force on Governance Design will work with American Chemical Society Governance groups to develop value-added approaches to make sure that the Society is able to achieve the OBJECTS of the organization as directed by our federal charter (refer to OBJECTS video) Over the next few months, ACS staff and volunteers on the Task Force will:


  • Engage - stakeholders in identifying opportunities and issues for governance improvement;
  • Design - a next generation governance model enabling ACS to advance its objects;
  • Develop - the case for effective change based on that model, and communicate with stakeholders to incorporate their feedback; and
  • Provide - the model and implementation road map to the Board and Council.


We look forward to joining with you to imagine the future and ensure that the American Chemical Society excels at achieving the purpose of our charter in the 21st century.
