Last year, AIChE was able to quadruple the number of dues-paying member and we are committed to continue this growth. This year, AIChE is focusing on professional development, alumni outreach, and promoting the chemical engineering community. Chemical engineers are relevant to many industries, and we believe it is important members are aware of their options and have the necessary soft skills to achieve their personal goals. To accomplish this, we have many events planned for this upcoming year. Please consider donating to AIChE and helping us reach our objectives for this year. Below, we have what we will do with any donations we receive and why these donations are essential to our members. If you are unable to give at this time but would still like to stay updated on club activities, please feel free to contact us at AIChE@nd.edu to learn more about what we're up to. Thank you and go Irish!
The Notre Dame Chapter of AIChE has been rapidly growing with the number of dues-paying members quadrupling last year. To accommodate the increasing popularity and participation, we have been constantly expanding our programming and event variety. This requires a lot of funding to host speakers, organize trips, and to increase the number of extracurricular projects.
The donations will help us accomplish the goals we have set out for this upcoming year:
1. Increase skill-based physical projects such as a rig-building competition to prepare students with hands-on experience.
2. Host programming language teaching sessions to help students become more familiar with multiple languages.
3. Expand our Chemical Engineering apparel selection
4. Fund more social and career-centered activities.
5. Implement and improve our mentoring program between alumni and undergraduates.
We will be using donations to fund students to go to the AIChE Regional Conference, an important opportunity for networking and professional development. Registration is $55 per member and we are hoping to send 50 members. In addition, we would like every member to feel comfortable participating in any and all activities, regardless of financial ability. Because of this, we would love to be able to fully fund all of our planned club events for this coming year.
