When you’re able to connect with others to share your love of the chemical sciences, everyone grows. CIC local sections brings peers together to help each other discuss ideas, enjoy educational activities, host outreach events for the public, and just plain have fun with like-minded people!

Whether you’re working in private industry, an academic, or a student, you can benefit from the exchange of ideas that only your peers can provide. Your local section brings together everyone in your region who shares your passion for the chemical sciences and engineering.

You’ll enjoy activities like:

  • Touring industrial plants and other facilities
  • Attending lectures
  • Mentoring opportunities
  • Social and networking events
  • Public outreach events

We Make it Easy to Take Part

When you become a member, we’ll assign you to the nearest local section, based on your home address. You’ll get emails that keep you up to date with all the events, activities, and news happening in your area.
