Welcome to the Great Plains Catalysis Society

On behalf of the exec­u­tive com­mit­tee, weare pleased to announce the formation of the Great Plains Catalysis Society (GPCS), a society that seeks to promote fellowship and collaborations among the chemists, chemical engineers, material scientists and other scientists in the general Great Plains region who are interested in catalysis and related fields. I am excited that catalysis scientists in the area will have a society that can host regional meetings, honor outstanding catalysis research, and bring catalysis scientists and engineers together.  

You are invited to join GPCS and contribute to this mission. Membership dues are $30 for regular members and $10 for students and retirees. These dues cover membership to both GPCS and our parent organization, the North American Catalysis Society (NACS). You will automatically be registered with the NACS with your membership to GPCS. 

The benefits of joining GPCS are numerous. Members will have a regional venue for sharing research progress and technological needs between industry and academia.  We seek to foster collaborations among members and leverage unique research capabilities to spur regional economic development.  In support of this mission we plan to publicize research expertise and unique instrumentation / reactor systems in academic laboratories via our website. Students will benefit from participation in the GPCS through poster session presentations and the opportunity to network with industrial colleagues in the region.  Suppliers of advanced instrumentation will benefit from access to a targeted market in a small group setting.
