Is the attendee list for sale?

No. It appears that fraudulent companies are scouring the Annual Meeting website for session chair, presenter and exhibitor information and are reaching out under the guise of working with AOCS. These companies are not affiliated with AOCS in any way and are attempting to obtain personal information and credit card numbers in exchange for an excel document.

We are not sure what contact list they are attempting to sell, but we guarantee it is not the actual AOCS Annual Meeting attendee list. The list is not available for distribution — paid or otherwise — due to AOCS’ strict adherence to the General Data Protection Regulation that went into effect in May 2018.
