We are IChemE and Strategy 2022

Strengthening our membership voice

Jonathan Seville and John McGaghWe are IChemE and like other professional bodies, we face changes on several fronts. Our membership is changing rapidly, as are the industries that they support. This in turn prompts changes in the nature of volunteer input, not least as a result of increasing pressure on volunteer time.

The world is changing fast, and with it, the expectations of our 40,000 members and the communities that they serve. IChemE is an independent, public-benefit charity committed to advancing chemical engineering worldwide – a mission that was supported by an overwhelmingly large majority of our members in last year’s strategy consultation.

We want to be the organisation of choice for chemical engineers and this demands a new approach to governance that will put us up there with the best. Professional chemical engineers deserve nothing less, and we need member input to get this right.
