Officers and Directors

ARCS Northern California Chapter


An elected board of directors, all volunteers, oversees all aspects of the Northern California Chapter of ARCS Foundation (ARCS Foundation NCC). At monthly board meetings, the work and progress of the committees are discussed. Officers of the Northern California  Board include president, immediate past president or first vice president, secretary and vice presidents. Councils include: Communications, Development, Major Events, Membership, Scholar Relations, Science Activities, and University Relations. 

The fiscal year is July 1 –June 30, with the annual meeting each May. The year’s largest events are the fall Scholar Awards Celebration and the spring Symposium, featuring that year's ARCS Scholars. Starting in 2022, the two events were combined into one, held in the spring.
