The Tampa Bay Section of the American Chemical Society (section # 406) was established in 1994. We promote public awareness of chemistry by being involved in outreach programs in our community and work with students to encourage an interest in the chemical science arena.
Our membership is encompasses the Hillsborough, Pinellas, Pasco, Hernando, Manatee and Sarasota counties with 700+ members.
The American Chemical Society (ACS) is one of the largest professional organizations that represent the chemical industry. The ACS supports 160,000+ members globally, publishing its weekly C&EN magazine and up-to-date scientific journals.
In May, our Section hosted an Awards Dinner honoring our 50- and 60- year members and featuring our Section's to Regional STEM Fair student competitors. We also recognized our Entrepreneur of the Year, Josh Cloakey, and Volunteer of the Year, Dr. Laura Henchey.
Congratulations to all of our honorees!
