Local Section Awards Local Section Awards recognize excellence in public affairs initiatives, educational programs, and other accomplishments. Virtual Local Section The Virtual Local Section has no geographic boundaries and serves geographically isolated Chemical Engineers. It targets AIChE members without access to a local section; Process Engineers who often aren't well supported professionally by their companies; and Young professionals. Visit the Virtual Local Section site Start a New Local Section By forming a local section, you can help serve your colleagues and peers in a more personal and direct way. Your local section can help meet the needs of chemical engineers who work and live in the area by offering technical seminars, joint activities with other engineering groups, and by providing a practical forum for sharing ideas, updates and information. Shining Star Award The Local Sections Committee and Career and Education Operating Council are proud to administer the Shining Star Award which recognizes outstanding volunteerism at the AIChE local section level and encourages members to become more involved in local section activities. Local Sections Committee (LSC) The Local Sections committee is charged with developing the relationships between AIChE's local sections and AIChE Staff and the Career and Education Operating Council. Through monthly networking calls, meetings, and using other available means of collaboration, the LSC aims to highlight local section best practice and develop practical resource materials that will help AIChE's volunteer section leaders serve their constituents.
