Celebrating our most loyal supporters
Two thousand and seventeen marks the 115th year that the Society has been in existence. It is a milestone that presents an opportunity to honor the legacy of all of our members and supporters over the years who have helped ECS thrive and grow into an important and vibrant organization. This reflection on our past also precipitates the creation of a bold vision forward. This anniversary, we are pleased to announce the ECS Giving Societies that recognize our most loyal and generous donors, whose model support we hope will encourage the involvement of others who can ensure the long-term sustainability of our Society.
Without the donors who have qualified for these distinctions below, the work we do to advance our sciences through meetings, publications, and honoring outstanding members of our community would be impossible. Please contact the ECS Development Office to learn how you can join your colleagues and peers in one of these designations while also securing the future of ECS for another 115 years. Thank you for your support and ideas.
