Meeting Location: Fargo, ND
In addition to the 6 voting Districts to which ACS members are assigned, there also are 10 geographical Regions. Regions were historically developed during the time of war when travel to National meetings was difficult. Today, regional meetings are still held by local sections in venues that are more accessible to graduate and undergraduate students, younger faculty members and to those in industry who had modest travel support. In addition, they also provide valuable networking possibilities to all participants.
The East Central Illinois local section is within the Great Lakes Region and local sections within this region host meetings every other odd-numbered year. Future meetings include the 2019 Chicago and Joliet section co-hosted meeting and 2021 meeting hosted by the Minnesota Section. Then, in 2023, we are happy to announce that our very own East Central Illinois local section will be co-hosting a region meeting with the St. Louis section!
