I have worked with this organization as a volunteer for 23 years. The members are not only dedicated to providing a valuable service to the laboratory research community but use the profits from the annual conference & exposition (Pittcon) to conduct science outreach activities at all levels from Kindergarten through the professional level. These are done in the greater Pittsburgh area and throughout the U.S.
