USA and Canada

About us

The USA and Canada Members Group began as the Gulf Coast Member Group following the appointment of Maurice Wilkins as IChemE’s first Senior Ambassador in the USA. The group held its first meeting in Houston in July 2013 with the then IChemE President, Russell Scott, in attendance.

Scott’s visit prompted a positive response and plans were initiated to develop a formal group with Houston, Texas as a geographical centre. Since then, the group has grown to facilitate networking with chemical engineering across the North American continent and aims to bring IChemE members together for technical discussions in an informal setting, social events and networking activity.

Primary goals include mentoring and the development of structures that will encourage the uptake of professional qualifications, including Chartered Chemical Engineer and Professional Process Safety Engineer.
