Innovation in Action: Virtual Section Logo Contest Winner!

The winning logo for the new Virtual Local Section has been determined. The winning logo was designed by Elizabeth Horahan.

Thank you to everyone who submitted a logo and those that voted.

What is the new Virtual Section?

Local sections are the backbone of AIChE. However, not everyone is able to attend a local section meeting. If you can't attend an AIChE local section meeting because there is no local section within a 60 minute drive or the closest local section is dormant, you will soon have a new section to join. A virtual section will begin meeting via the internet starting in January 2011. Our goal is to provide the highest quality programming to support our local section members.

In order for the virtual section to be relevant, the social aspect of a local section will need to be offered. This will initially be accomplished by forming smaller subgroups that have more in common with each other such as Process Engineers, Young Professionals, Minorities, Women, Internationals, and people interested in Engineers without Borders. In addition, we will look into offering support for the unemployed and underemployed along with mentoring support for members.

If you would like more information about the virtual section, please visit the virtual section website at or contact the virtual section officers at or

You can join the virtual section for free throughout 2010 and 2011 by registering at our Website. And if you would like to join our leadership team, please contact Dan Lambert, or 803-819-8466.
