Here is the scoop -
CCS - Is the Committee on Chemical Safety - It is part of the overall governance structure of the ACS. (You can check out the ACS and You a self paced course from the ACS Leadership Development Page - to see all of the information related to ACS Governance.)
DCHAS - is a Technical Division within the ACS. The technical divisions are the ones responsible for the technical content of the national meetings as well as other activities.
Members of CCS are appointed through the ACS Governance rules and the guidance of the ACS Charter (i.e. how many members, how many must be councilors, etc.) The appointments are term limited.. The Committee deals with policy issues, development of information for the other aspects of the ACS operations, etc. There is a specific charter and duties listed in the ACS Bulletin 5 document.
The Division is governed more through the membership, as divisions are formed by members focusing on specific topical areas.
Hope this helps. Yes, there will be a lot of overlap because the subject matter experts are hopefully members of the Division.
