Congress

Be the voice. Make a difference.

Congress is the new member advisory body of the Institution comprising up to 40 volunteer members elected by their peers. It acts as a sounding board and advises the Board of Trustees on matters of interest to IChemE and its members. To make it easy for the volunteers to engage, it holds most of its sessions online.

Further detail is provided in the Institution’s handbook Your CongressRole Descriptions for Congress members, the Congress Chair and Vice-Chair have been developed to outline their responsibilities and duties.

Watch a recording of the webinar, hosted by John McGagh on IChemE's YouTube channel.
