// Upcoming NorCal Member Events: Five New Years Resolutions for NorCal Chemical Engineers

Welcome to 2019 where we have a busy slate of activities coming up for the year. We've put together five New Year's Resolutions for you to consider to make the most of your valued AIChE Membership:

(1) This month, relax, mingle with other chemical engineers on a pilot plant tour of the Advanced Biofuels and Bioprocess Lab at Lawrence Berkeley

(2) Attend our dinner event about communicating as a Chemical Engineer on February 13.

(3) Learn about oil and gas filtration from a real life case study at Pentair in March 19.

(4) Volunteer to become a mentor or sign up to become a career development mentee with our new NorCal mentorship program.

(5) Make 2019 the year you sharpen your technical speaking skills and share your professional expertise by becoming an AIChE NorCal speaker in 2019.

Thank you and hope to see you at one of our events!

Your AIChE NorCal Leadership Team
