One of the most enticing reasons to become a member of Duquesne ACS is that all members receive benefits simply for joining the organization. One of the most important of these benefits is the opportunity to attend networking and presentation events. At these events, our members often have the chance to present their research to others through both oral and poster presentations. Even if you're not interested in presenting, any member of ACS is welcome to attend to view the presentations and talk to the other attendees! Additionally, the scale of these events varies from campus-wide to national! Duquesne ACS is often involved in sponsoring members to help cover some of the expenses associated with attending a national meeting. At the very least, Duquesne ACS will pay the national ACS membership dues for any member who majors in chemistry or biochemistry - all you have to do is ask!
Aside from conference opportunities and paying national membership dues, Duquesne ACS also makes it easy to volunteer in the community, get involved in research at Duquesne, and find academic help and support through small mentor groups. The only way to receive these benefits is to sign up for Duquesne ACS and get involved! We discuss volunteer opportunities and meet in our mentor groups at every meeting, so attending each meeting is a sure way to use your Duquesne ACS benefits to your advantage! Plus if you have any questions about your benefits or a suggestion for benefits we should add in the future, our meetings are a great place to let us know!
Lastly, by becoming a Duquesne ACS member, you (chemistry and biochemistry majors) are also officially affiliated with the national ACS organization. Therefore, in addition to receiving the local benefits of Duquesne ACS, you also get the slew of benefits offered by the national ACS organization! All of the benefits associated with being a national ACS member can be found on the ACS website.
