Growing AIChE Through Sound Fiscal Stewardship: In 2012, AIChE had one of its best years financially, and has experienced membership growth through the excellent efforts of AIChE members, staff, board of directors, and executive committee members. Bond is committed to maintaining this positive trend through sound financial management — managing spending and investing assets wisely. His top priorities are expanding AIChE’s membership through development of value-added services with real potential for return on investment, and securing AIChE’s financial future. He believes that enhancing AIChE’s value to industrial, university, international members, chemical engineering students and early-career professionals remains the cornerstone to securing AIChE’s financial future.
