Chilterns & Middlesex

Section No. 34

The Section represents members in the north and west of London and parts of the adjacent counties of Buckinghamshire and Hertfordshire. Towns on the periphery of the Section include Slough, High Wycombe, Aylesbury, Watford and Enfield. The Section is one of the largest with a membership of over 2000.

We aim to:

  • communicate a better understanding of chemical science to the general public and promote the profession to young people
  • arrange programmes of local activities including networking events and, in so doing, act as a channel of communication between members and the RSC
  • recruit suitable candidates for membership, promote Chartered status and encourage members to 'upgrade' their membership when appropriate
  • foster good relationships with the RSC Forums and Interest Groups and, in particular, support the work of the Benevolent Fund in our locality.
