Register for the Listening Session

Following this session, the ACS Division of Professional Relations (PROF) will be hosting a listening session building off of the ACS webinar to allow members to provide their thoughts, ideas, and suggested action items.

It is not required for attendees of the Listening Session to attend the ACS Webinar, but it is highly encouraged and the video recording can be viewed on-demand following the live broadcast (free ACS Member benefit).

These paired events will help us to continue to listen to our Members and provide them a conduit to share their thoughts, feelings, and suggested actions for us to help enable as their elected officers.
