As an organization, AOCS brings together a community of scientists, technicians, nutritionists, researchers, and other industry professionals advancing the science and technology of edible oils, fats, proteins, surfactants, and related materials. AOCS is a leading international society with more than 2000 members around the world.

Sunday April 30th promises to be a busy and exciting opening day for the AOCS Annual Meeting. From 2:30 to 3:30 pm, there will be a Newcomers Reception taking place in Hall A. This event welcomes all attendees who are attending the AOCS Annual Meeting & Expo for the first time to meet the current and past Governing Board Members, leaders from AOCS, and current and past society winners.

From 7:00 to 8:00 pm, there will be three networking events taking place. The AOCS’ three common interest groups—student, young professional, and professional educator—combine to host an evening reception for all conference attendees. It provides attendees with an opportunity to connect with fellow attendees in a fun and relaxed environment—to share ideas and discover solutions to problems that can help overcome several important challenges at work.
