Member Consultation on IChemE Strategy December 2016

Working together to become the organisation of choice for chemical engineers

Jonathan SevilleWe are on a journey. IChemE’s centenary is approaching and we will celebrate our 100th birthday in 2022. This milestone provides a great opportunity to take stock and reassess the Institution’s purpose, vision and aims. To that end, IChemE’s governing Council initiated a review of our strategy and governance arrangements.

IChemE was created in 1922 because chemical engineering mattered. It still matters today. That’s why we are here and that’s why this consultation is important.

In December 2016 we asked you (our members) to think carefully about the role of the Institution, now and in the future. Thank you to everyone who responded to our survey on IChemE’s evolving strategy.

The feedback was discussed with Council and our new Chief Executive Officer, Jon Prichard, who joined us in February 2017. From August 2017 we will canvas the membership again for your thoughts on IChemE’s future governance and structure. Join the conversation and make your voice heard – follow the links below to find out more.
