Chinese American Chemical Society (CACS)
Founded in 1981, the Chinese American Chemical Society (CACS) is a nonprofit, professional organization with no political and regional affiliation. Membership is open to professionals and students in chemistry, chemical engineering, and related fields, and to individuals and corporations supporting the objectives of CACS. Currently, CACS has five regional chapters in North America.
The East chapter area has the largest population of Chinese American chemists, biochemists,
and chemical engineers and is the hotbed of pharmaceutical and chemical research and
industry. As such, we are committed to providing a network for professional and career
development, career guidance and counseling for younger people interested in scientific and
engineering careers, and recognizing achievement in chemistry and chemical engineering,
community services, and other chemistry-related ventures.
We look forward to continuing our mission under our new name and expanding our reach to
better serve our members in the East Coast region. Thanks for the continued support of CACS
from all members of the society.
