When your ACS membership renewal notice arrives this time, please be sure to renew but also don't forget to check the box for payment of New York Local Section Dues.

Your $15.00 Voluntary Dues directly fund events and services, including the prestigious annual Nichols Medal Symposium, undergraduate research symposia, topical groups, subgroups, and other excellent programs. With your financial commitment, these important programs can continue to grow and benefit all our members.
