Welcome to the Southern California Section!

This is the website of the Southern California Section of the American Chemical Society. Throughout the year, we have lots of activities posted on this website (see the side bar for upcoming events!) and also printed in our monthly magazine, SCALACS. Please browse our website and see the kinds of events we have for chemists from all walks of life – from academia to industrial chemists.

We have dinner meetings each month throughout the academic year where you can hobnob with other chemists (interesting speakers and great food!). Students can attend the dinner meetings for half the published price with valid ID. If you would like to hear the speaker at a dinner meeting without attending the dinner, just let Nancy Paradiso in the Section Office (310 327-1216 or office-at-scalacs-dot-org) know so we can reserve you a seat. We also have great outreach programs such as National Chemistry Week, Chemists Celebrate Earth Day and the High School Olympiad to share chemistry with upcoming students. We’re always looking for volunteers to help with these important programs.

Members are also invited to attend our Executive Committee Meetings. This is a great way to see our Section governance in action! The Executive Committee Meetings are held the first Wednesday of each month (excluding December, June, July and August) at 7:30 p.m. The meetings are held at the Mount St. Mary’s Doheny campus. Please call Nancy at the Section Office for directions and to let her know that you are attending.

We hope to see you soon at an upcoming meeting or volunteering at an outreach event!
