A Message from Metro New York's Chair, Mary K. Lynch

I have been a member of the New York Metro Section for decades and I wish to share with you why I cherish our organization.

At the beginning of my engineering career, I was treated as an outsider by many of my colleagues, but that never happened with this group. I was heartily welcomed when I was a new graduate, and when I was a young engineer in a non-traditional industry for chemical engineers.

My involvement with AIChE allowed me to continue cultivating my chemical interests during periods when my work had me performing mechanical engineering projects. Keeping connected to other chemical engineers has always been important to me.

We continue to welcome all chemical engineers from a wide array of backgrounds and any amount of experience. Our ChE professionals come from a wide swath of industries including academics, banking, consulting, environmental, legal, pharmaceuticals, polymers, etc.

I look forward to seeing you all again soon. Speaking with you is always enjoyable. While the current pandemic continues, we cannot meet in person, but we are able to meet via Zoom. Please join us at these meetings.

Mary K. Lynch, Chair, AIChE Metro New York Section
