Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) AIChE Updates 

AIChE is committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for attendees of our upcoming events and we are actively monitoring the development and impact of the Coronavirus on the ability for all to travel and attend safely. At the top of every event through the end of 2020, we have a note with the status of the event—on schedule, postponed with dates to come, postponed with dates announced, or canceled. 

We recognize that the situation is rapidly evolving and that alternative plans may be necessary as the time gets closer. If the situation changes, we will update the event notices and inform attendees. 

Exercise Precaution and Inform Yourself 

AIChE encourages its members to stay informed of the health risks associated with the Coronavirus, understand how it spreads, and practice social distancing. We follow and encourge our members to follow recommendations from the CDC (Center for Disease Control) and WHO (World Health Organization).

  • AIChE will follow recommendations for events from the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the policies of the local government and city officials.
