Tidewater Virginia Local Section

Welcome to the Tidewater Virginia Local Section community site!  Our section covers central and southeastern Virginia, highlighted in blue on our logo, a map of Virginia.  Managed by a group of volunteer officers and directors, we have about 80 local members.   Our programs include technical presentations, plant tours, social events and outreach to student chapters in our area: Virginia Comomnwealth University and Hampton University.  The Tidewater AIChE section is a member of two "umbrella" orgainizations, the Richmond Joint Engineers Council (RJEC) and the Peninsula Engineers Council (PEC).  These councils consist of various enginering societies, support STEM education and sponsor Engineers Week activities; an awards banquet and Career Day events for students.
