Young Professionals Committee (YPC)

The Young Professionals Committee works to increase participation among young professionals in Institute activities. It serves as an intermediary between students and local sections and creates national technical and social programming for AIChE conferences. YPC members run sub-sections of local sections to hold events especially for young professionals. Monthly calls are conducted to plan events for upcoming conferences and AIChE student chapters.
