The Senior Chemists Committee (SCC) was established in 2013. The SCC VISION is to improve lives using the knowledge and experience of senior chemists, and its MISSION is to address community needs and ambitions by utilizing senior chemists’ knowledge and experience. SCC's goals are to (1) develop avenues to expand communications and promotions to enhance awareness of senior chemist activities; (2) increase the number of senior chemist groups in local sections; and (3) to engage with community groups that benefit from senior chemists’ expertise.
MISSION: To address and support the needs and ambitions of senior chemists and to utilize their experience and knowledge.
