June 2023 Co-Presidents' Message

Posted on Monday, June 12, 2023

What an amazing year it has been at ARCS Northern California! We were thrilled to see so many members at the recent Annual Meeting at the Metropolitan Club on May 17th.  It was a wonderful celebration of all our accomplishments this year. 

Some of our key accomplishments were:

•    Increased Funding: We are proud to announce that each of our university partners will receive more ARCS funds than ever before to support their top STEM and medical research scholars.

•    Embracing the New Normal: We successfully transitioned back to in-person activities, including university site visits and our Scholar Awards Celebration & Symposium. Our chapter has set a new template for the post-COVID era.

•    Engaging in New Ways: We have focused on engaging our membership in fresh ways, leveraging our rich history, raising funds for scholars, and having fun together.

•    Expanding and Strengthening University Relations: We welcomed UC Merced as our seventh university partner and deepened relationships with our existing six partner universities, welcoming 83 scholars through meet-and-greets and university site visits.

We are immensely grateful to everyone who contributed to the success of ARCS NCC this year. THANK YOU!

As we close out the year, we are determined to meet our goal of raising the necessary funds to support the $1.16M allocation for the 2023-2024 academic year. We have full confidence in our ability to cross the finish line, but need the support of every member to make it happen!  If you have not already made your contribution to the Scholar Awards Fund, you can do so here.

Thank you all for making this year so remarkable. We hope you continue to enjoy being a part of ARCS NCC, fostering friendship, doing good, and advancing science.

Cheers to our incredible ARCS NCC members!
