Links in the Chain
How to be part of the network and what it will do for you.
For your chemical society to be an active part of the Student Chemical Society Network first you've got to register online. Once successfully registered a society's details can be posted onto our web site so that other people can contact you.
The next step is to nominate a RSC Liaison Officer. He/she will act as a link between your student chemical society, your chemistry department and the RSC. They will keep in contact with other student chemical societies and liaise with the RSC Local Section Committee
The Liaison Officer plays a vital role in the SCS Network.
To act as a link between:
- your Chemical Society, chemistry department and the Royal Society of Chemistry
- other Student Chemical Societies within the Network; and
- your Chemical Society and the RSC Local Section Committee
- register your Chemical Society Committee with the Student Chemical Society Network
- promote the Society and RSC membership, with co-operation from your Chemical Society
- ensure that RSC news and information is communicated within your chemistry department
- network and exchange ideas with other Student Chemical Societies
- initiate and maintain contact with your RSC Local Section Committee
- act as a bridge between changing committees and ensure that information is passed to the incoming committee
Student Chemical Society Conference
Each year we hold the Student Chemical Society Conference for all new Liaison Officers. Newly appointed representatives can meet Liaison Officers from other student chemical societies. It's also an opportunity to get to know how the RSC works, to discuss any relevant issues, to give feedback on current services and to suggest new services.
