Highlight a Benefit: Webinars

. by Elizabeth Guenther

John F Kennedy once said, “Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other.” As a chemical engineer, you are a lifelong student. Let’s face it – your college degree likely did not cover the intricacies of what your current job function requires. There are constantly new technologies, government regulations, and industry standards to learn. Additionally, as a young professional, you are learning the corporate culture, organizational structure, and the hundreds of acronyms that are supposed to make your life easier. It can become overwhelming! Luckily, AICHE makes learning simple and fun through online webinars.

What is YPAB?

. by Elizabeth Guenther

In 2002, AIChE set out to better serve its young members by creating the Young Professional Advisory Board (YPAB). Its goal was to gain and maintain participation of young professional AIChE members. Almost ten years later, it continues to pursue this goal through a variety of ways led by some of AIChE’s brightest and highly motivated young members.
