The Great Plains Catalysis Society (GPCS) is dedicated to education and research in catalysis in the area of the Great Plains. 

The principal objectives of the GPCS shall be to:
  • Promote and encourage the advancement of the science of catalysis,reaction mechanisms, catalytic materials and related scientific disciplines, consistent with the mission of the North American Catalysis Society (NACS).
  • Organize regional professional meetings for members to present and discuss their work in the fields mentioned above.
  • Invite leading catalysis scientists to present their work to the GPCS as guest speakers.
  • 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.
  • To organize biennial NACS meetings in the GPCS region.
