The 1st Pan African Crystallography Meeting, Cameroon, October 6 - 11, 2016

Please consider making a tax deductible donation to the ACA fund to support African student attendance at the Crystallography Meeting in Cameroon. ACA CEO, Bill Duax, has made an initial donation of $500 to open the fund. Three of the four regional Associates of the IUCr, the European Crystallographic Association (ECA), the Asian Crystallographic Association (AsCA), and the Latin American Crystallographic Association have made contributions to support the Pan African Conference.

The ACA's uses its limited resources to support its annual meeting. In accordance with official ACA policy, requests for support for other crystallographic meetings held in the USA or abroad are turned down.  However, as the regional affiliate of the IUCr, the ACA had outreach program to nurture the growth of crystallography in Latin America. When the Latin American Regional  Affiliate was formed the outreach program was terminated. For this reason, it is necessary to issue this request if the ACA is to join the other three regional affiliates of the IUCr in their effort to support the growth of Crystallography in Africa. Please consider making a tax deductible donation. Even better, attend the Conference and establish contact with an African Crystallographer.

Donations should be made payable to American Crystallographic Association, include a note stating what the funds are to be used for, and mailed to ACA, P.O. Box 96 Ellicott Station, Buffalo, NY 14205-0096. (716) 898-8692. F.I.N. 22-6075182.

To make a donation on a credit card, please contact: [email protected] or fax info to 716 898 8695.

Thank you for your support!
