The Southern Nevada Local Section of the American Chemical Society consists of roughly 250 members that live in the southern part of Nevada. Local section activities are conducted primarily in the Las Vegas Area.
The section conducts a variety of events during each year and occasionally hosts a regional event such as the Western Regional Meeting.
- Several community outreach events occur each year, Chemistry Olympiad, National Chemistry Week, and Chemists Celebrate Earth Day.
- The section sponsors student groups at UNLV and CSN.
- There is a high school chemistry teachers group.
- The local section operates under the guidance of a local executive committee.
Local section meetings are scheduled once every 6 weeks and the meetings do not occur at the same time or location. Local members should have an e-mail on file so that they can be notified of meetings. If the reader thinks that something is missing from our website, please contact us.
