USA and Canada
The role of the USA and Canada Member Group, formed in 2013, is to be the ambassadors of IChemE at a local level and assist in the delivery of the Institution's mission, through events, technical meetings, networking, professional development and promotion of the chemical and process engineering profession.
The USA and Canada member group is made up of members from the chemical engineering community and regional representatives from across North America. The committee meets regularly to organise technical meetings and events for the benefit of members that continues to enhance the profession.
The member group is designed to provide support to IChemE members by running events and technical meetings, support chemical engineers striving to achieve Chartered membership, Fellowship and promotion of chemical engineering.
The events provide opportunities for members to network, share ideas and promote the discipline at a regional level, and are tailored to meet local needs. Typical events include technical seminars and social events.
Getting involved in local IChemE activity provides an ideal opportunity to continue your professional development and share ideas with fellow professionals. The more you participate, the greater the rewards.
The opportunities for involvement are varied:
- become a committee member
- become an interviewer/assessor of membership application
- join a special interest group
- mentor younger members
- organise a technical event.
All these activities offer you the chance to develop your personal skills, exposure to and interaction with fellow professionals.
Please contact the group chair if you are interested in volunteering or have any other query about the group.
