Welcome to the Rhode Island Local Section community site, serving the needs of chemical engineers in Rhode Island and nearby areas of Connecticut and Massachusetts

The Rhode Island local section was founded in the 1950's, and is presently in the process of re-invigorating the section.  We have been holding 2-4 events per year, including meetings and tours of nearby facilities.
