LOCAL SECTION DUES
Thank you to all our section members who voluntarily contribute $2 dues each year to the section. While our section receives an allotment ($9416) from the national office it does not cover the adminsitration of all of our activities. In fact, we run a deficit budget each year, covering that deficit from income made from hosting previous SERMACS meetings. Your contribution helps us offset the costs of our award programs ($4000), sponsorship of our section's Chemistry Olympiad ($800) and NCW ($1200) programs, support of local project SEED high school students ($2000) and collegiate student affiliate chapters ($800), unreimbursed expenses of our two councilors to national meetings ($1800), travel costs for new officers to attend the ACS Leadership Institute ($1200), plus local meetings costs and section administrative costs. Annual financial reports may be found in the archive section on our website.
