Get Involved in the ACS Celebration of International Year of Chemistry 2011:
Support the U.S. Commemorative Stamp Campaign
The ACS is working to urge the United States Postal Service to adopt
chemistry as a theme for a commemorative stamp in 2011 in view of
the contributions of chemistry to the well-being of humankind in
the U.S. and worldwide and on the occasion of the
2011 International Year of Chemistry.
The USPS gets 50,000 subject requests per year and awards only 25
commemorative stamps per year - Your efforts to contribute to this
cause this year are very important and very much appreciated!
How to get involved:
to download the petition
- Distribute the petition for signature among your colleagues, students, and friends (all chemists and friends of chemistry are encouraged to sign!)
- Mail or FAX completed petitions to the ACS Office of International Activities no later than November 1. (see petition for fax number and address)
