The first Chapter of the Society was
formed in 1948 and was known as the Chicago Chapter. In
1966 the Chicago Chapter name was changed to the Midwest
Chapter. The second chapter followed in 1955.
The Society now has a total of 19 chapters across the country
and Canada. Chapters serve as the lifeblood of the Society
and are run by dedicated volunteers who give of their time
and expertise. Most Chapters conduct monthly meetings and
hold educational seminars for members in their area. A few
chapters have supplier exhibits and social events. Almost
all 19 chapters publish their own newsletters.
Membership numbers in Chapters vary from 35 members in
our smallest chapter to 1400 in our largest chapter. No
matter how large or small, all Chapters work for the goals
of the Society which is the advancement of cosmetic science.
