All chapter members will have documentation they can

Share your successes and access new ideas
ACS student chapters are typically composed of über-involved
and dedicated chemistry students. Each year these students
submit reports brimming with information about new and
innovative events and activities. Until now, only a handful of
people had access to this information, but things have changed.
Student Chapters Online provides a “sharing” function that you
can use to nominate noteworthy chapter events. ACS staff will
review the nominations and then post them on the student
dashboard, where they will be visible to all students and faculty
who sign into the system.

Submitting a chapter report not only helps your chapter to
maintain active status in ACS, it clearly details to ACS and chap-
ter members, faculty, and the chemistry department how the
chapter has contributed chemistry to your community while
demonstrating professional development skills. Chapter records
and the resulting chapter report will be much more accurate.
The whole reporting process will be easier, faster, and less
stressful for students and faculty advisors. Once your chapter
reports are reviewed and ranked, chapter officers can view the
rankings and reviewer comments.
You’ll be able to raise your chapter’s visibility by submitting
high-resolution photos and other supplementary materials with
your chapter report. Supplemental materials, including photos,
flyers, and newspaper articles, help online faculty reviewers to
better understand your chapter activities and events. Student
chapters can now look forward to increased storage space for
uploading high-resolution photos that can be used on
inChemistry covers and in our awards ceremony video, which provides
recognition and great PR for your chapter.
Student Chapters Online will help you to better manage your
chapter and the streamline the chapter report process. Check it
