This past April, the Canadian Society for Chemical Engineering (CSChE) local section members joined forces with the Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE) to stage a joint meeting. About 30 members of both organizations gathered for a discussion on process safety competency and presentations by CSChE’s Richard Piette, Suncor Energy and IChemE director Andy Furlong. CSChE president elect Uttandaraman Sundararaj of the University of Calgary was also in attendance. Collaborative working and joint programming is now on the agenda and further joint meetings open to both CSChE and IChemE members will be announced shortly.
