PMSE is powered by volunteers! We need energetic people to help us in our quest to shape the future of polymer science and engineering. Whether you’re a student, consultant, educator, or active/retired professional from an academic, industrial, or government lab, please join us. Volunteering with PMSE provides excellent opportunities for networking across a broad technical community. And, if you attend ACS meetings, we’d love your help with our meeting events and technical programming.

  • Educational outreach
  • Symposium organization
  • Volunteer opportunities at national meetings (Session Chair, award judge, membership table volunteer, PMSE representative to ACS functions)
  • Regional meetings
  • Student Chapters
  • Newsletter/website content (articles, book reviews, etc.)
  • PMSE Committees (see our Governance Directory for a full list): awards, finance, publicity, technical programming, liaison to other ACS organizations/committees, education, publications, membership, young polymer scientists/engineers
