Goals for the AIChE

AIChE has made tremendous strides in the past two years to return the organization to sound financial health. If given the opportunity to serve as your future President, I will focus my leadership skills and broad experience in both academia and industry to continue this revitalization while improving benefits to each of our members.

New technologies, ranging from biotechnology and nanotechnology to new energy systems and sustainable development,
create opportunities and challenges for practicing chemical engineers as well as researchers.

AIChE must become the premier professional society in these emerging fields, ensuring that our members are at the forefront of new areas of technology.

If elected, my goals will be to:

  • Position AIChE as the leader in emerging areas of technology
  • Revitalize AIChE nationally by strengthening the local AIChE sections and providing more services that members really want
  • Dramatically improve communications between AIChE leadership, local sections and individual members, insuring that Institute goals align with members’ needs
  • Support local sections by providing resources such as an improved membership database and speakers bureau
  • Expand career services to help members manage and build successful careers
  • Achieve closer cooperation between academia and industry so that tomorrow’s graduates have good career opportunities and meet the needs of industry
  • Build the financial strength of the Institute by continuing a policy of fiscal responsibility and reverse the decline in membership, emphasizing recruitment of young members
