Manage your Local Section's Online Presence

Local Sections Committee (LSC)

The Local Sections committee is charged with developing the relationships between AIChE's local sections and AIChE Staff and the Career and Education Operating Council. Through monthly networking calls, meetings, and using other available means of collaboration, the LSC aims to highlight local section best practice and develop practical resource materials that will help AIChE's volunteer section leaders serve their constituents.
