Speaker Directory

Starting in 1936, ACS offered ACS members a choice of vetted speakers on a variety of technical and non-technical topics at Local Section meetings. In 2010, this service was transitioned to an Online Speaker Directory. Local Section officers and planners can peruse the profiles of highly qualified professionals and work directly with speakers to plan the details of their speaking engagement. To gain full access to the Directory, you may submit a request to speakers@acs.org.
