About us

The virtual section functions much as any local section does:

  • Hold monthly meetings to encourage the professional growth of chemical engineers.
  • Opportunity for networking by attendees at monthly meetings.
  • Serve our local communities, states, country and world using our hands, heads and hearts.
  • The virtual section isn't limited by geography so geographically isolated ChEs can be supported.

There are some differences that make us unique:

Our vision: No Chemical Engineer Left Behind

What VLS is

  • A Local Section with a charter and bylaws
  • Monthly meetings with monthly programming
  • Allow viewing of archived meetings

What VLS isn’t

  • No geographic boundaries
  • Supported but not tied to local sections
  • We don’t want to be a second option for people to choose from
  • We don’t want to be a second webinar timeslot

Our audience

  • AIChE members without access to a local section
  • Process Engineers who often aren't well supported professionally by their companies
  • Young professionals
