Chicago Younger Chemists Committee

Upcoming Events!
coming soon....

The Younger Chemists Committee of the Chicago Section of the American Chemical Society mission is to identify the needs and concerns of younger chemists and develop programs responsive to these needs. By cultivating communication and interaction between Chicago area young chemists, YCC hopes to broaden not only the horizons of our members but of those around us.

Chicago YCC Goals:
1. Increase involvement of younger chemists in the ACS at all levels by making the ACS relevant to younger chemists
2. Help younger chemists pursue a career in chemistry at many levels (graduate school, post doc, industry, and academics)
3. To build a network of engaged volunteers that contribute to the Chicago science community

Membership: You are a Younger Chemist (1) if you are under the age of 35 or (2) if you have been in your chemistry career less than ten years. Academic and industrial chemists, post docs and graduate and undergraduate students are all included!

2011 Committee: Cecelia Gondek (treasurer), Lisa Fredin (chair, webmaster), Julia Lin (secretary), Jenny McInnis, Lacy Simons, and Adam Thomas
