WHO ARE WE?
The Lehigh Valley Section of the American Chemical Society was the fifth local ACS section to be chartered. Founded in 1894, it serves the Lehigh Valley Area including six counties in Pennsylvania (Monroe, Northampton, Lehigh, Schuylkill, Berks and Carbon) and Warren county in New Jersey. ACS Local Sections promote public awareness of chemistry through community outreach programs. Working with students of chemistry and science, we encourage an interest in the chemical sciences. The LVACS also provides a valuable forum for communication between members and serves as a platform for sharing scientific and educational information. Find out more about us here.
