Welcome to the North Carolina Local Section of the American Chemical Society. 

We are a scientific society dedicated to supporting scientific inquiry in the field of chemistry. Our section was founded in 1896 and is the oldest section in the South.  Our founding fathers recognized the importance of being a resource to our community, supporting the advancement of chemistry and the importance of involvement at the local level.  Our membership is diverse with an opportunity to connect no matter where you are in your career.
