We all know how much value we can obtain and
share from ACS membership.  Within the last
week many of us have received our annual
dues and membership renewal paperwork.

What can you do if you are unemployed?  If you
are in this category and seeking full time
employment, a member in good standing can
request a dues waiver by checking off box
#7 on the back of the renewal form, signing
on the line requesting special dues consideration
and mailing it in.  The waiver only applies to
local section and national dues, however, not
to journals and division membership.

It is pertinent to note that other categories for
also exist for disabled members (full waiver)
and members with long term obligations as
a family care provider (half dues waiver).

A second year is possible for unemployed
chemists. 

With lay-offs and cutbacks happening to people
it is a little bit of help to know about this
thoughtful provision.
