Attendee List Scam

AOCS does not sell email lists of members or meeting registrants. Distribution or other use of the list without AOCS’ express authorization is strictly prohibited. Third-party “pirate” companies reach out to delegates and exhibitors offering to sell these lists often with the primary objective of obtaining credit card information. AOCS is aware that these solicitations occur but has no affiliation with these companies. Please contact AOCS Meetings Team with any questions or concerns at
