Tips and Tools for Using the
- MGM is an effective way for current ACS members to help their chapter meet the ACS Student Chapter bylaws requirements. You can sign up as many new members as you want. Each time you'll get an additional blanket!
- Many chapters sign up multiple students for MGM and end up with 20+ blankets. Why not put the extras to good use by raffling them off at your next chapter fundraiser?
- For your next community outreach event, perhaps National Chemistry Week or Chemists Celebrate Earth Day, donate a blanket to a classroom where you volunteer to help encourage kids to further their interest in chemistry.
- You can also use the blanket...
...as an incentive to get students to join your chapter.
...as a prize to recognize the accomplishments of a chapter member or student leader.
...as a great gift for a favorite Chemistry teacher, advisor or mentor.
No matter how you use it, the MGM blanket is a great tool for recruiting new ACS members.

- Nominators may nominate as many eligible candidates during the campaign, using a MGM application for each nominee.
(Nominations will not accumulate from year to year.)
- As the Nominator, please make sure your shipping address is current in your membership record.
- Nominators will be sent their blanket once the Nominee is accepted for membership and pays his or her dues. To qualify for the MGM campaign, dues must be received by December 31, 2015.
