Chair's Message

Welcome to the Texas Coastal Bend Section Home Page. We are located on the central Texas Gulf Coast and are one of the 189 Local Sections of the American Chemical Society. ACS Local Sections promote public awareness of chemistry by being involved in community outreach programs and by working with students of chemistry and science. We hope to encourage an interest in the chemical sciences.

If you are interested in becoming a member of ACS, please go to for more information.  If you are already an ACS member and would like to join our Local Section, please call or e-mail me (see Local Section Officers information below).
