Professional organizations and associations provide a wide range of
resources for planning and navigating a career in chemical engineering.
These groups can play a key role in your development and
keep you abreast of what is happening in your industry. Associations
promote the interests of their members and provide a network of contacts
that can help you find jobs and move your career forward. They can offer a
variety of services including job referral services, continuing education
courses, insurance, travel benefits, periodicals, and meeting and
conference opportunities. The following is a partial list of professional
associations serving chemical engineers and employers. A broader
list of professional associations is also available by
