The current COVID-19 situation is a reminder to us that together, even in uncertain times, we can lead, create, inspire and learn. As we continue to monitor the on-going situation, we want you to know that AIChE is here to help our community. During this time, we want to be sure you are aware of the resources AIChE can provide: Community With many scientists and engineers working virtually, it's more important than ever to maintain relationships and engage with others. You can connect with colleagues through AIChE’s Engage, our online community, to start a conversation or ask a question. Or check out AIChE’s Virtual Local Section or our social media channels. Content Use this time to take a break and focus on expanding your professional development skills. We are opening up access to many of our CEP articles, AIChE Academy online courses, and webinars for a limited time. Click here to see what is available. In addition, our ChEnected blog provides you with current, updated information and relevant topics on Chemical Engineering Practice and Professional Development. Sign up to receive emails to keep up to date on current chemical engineering and industrial news with our AIChE SmartBrief industry e-newsletter. Conferences Due to the current situation and the uncertainties related to planning physical conferences, we are reviewing our upcoming conferences and events to determine their timing and whether they will be held in-person or virtually. In the meantime, we encourage you to continue to submit abstracts or register for upcoming AIChE events. Please note that we have relaxed our cancellation policy. This means that you can continue to submit abstracts and register for our conferences and events without having to worry about registration fees should you not be able to attend.
