  • support through the Benevolent Fund
  • networking and social opportunities (local section mixers, events, tours and visits)


Why should I get Involved?

  • establish useful contacts both locally in the Thames Valley and also nationally
  • meet other younger members in the Thames Valley
  • help shape and advance the chemical sciences both locally, nationally and internationally


Where can I get Involved?
