Call for Volunteers - Various On-going Opportunities

NC-ACS has a variety of activities for which volunteers are needed! If you have interest in volunteering for any of these opportunities, please contact the NC-ACS Inbox, at ncamchemsoc@gmail.com, or attend an upcoming Executive Committee meeting (first Wednesday of the month at 4:30 pm at First Flight Venture Center in RTP):

  • We are looking for people to serve as reporters for our TarHelium newsletter.  A reporter will assist the editor in generating new content for the TarHelium, which means submitting news items happening in the region that could be of interest, and/or generating new content.
  • Are you a social media guru, or would like to gain experience in using social media for marketing? We are seeking volunteers to foster NC-ACS's presence on social media: Facebook, LinkedIN, Twitter, etc.
  • Project SEED has about 20-25 boxes of old student files in the chem dept at NC State that need to be sorted. There are 3 things that eventually need to happen with the data in these files: 1) shred tax/confidential data, 2) scan the rest so that we just have an electronic copy of it, and 3) data entry of that data into our database.
  • New project initiatives: A potential new project that is being considered is centered around developing Wikipedia entries for chemical scientists and landmarks in our region. Or do you have your own idea that you'd like to implement?
  • Our Discussion Groups and Committees can always utilize more volunteers for planning and hosting activities! Our Education committee is particularly in need of more volunteers.
