What is the Columbus section YCC?
We are an organization affiliated with the Columbus Section of the American Chemical Society and guided by the following mission statement:
“To inspire, support, and connect the young chemists of central Ohio in government, undergraduate/graduate school, post-doctoral work, industry, and academia.”
Our goals for this committee are as follows:
- Provide structured opportunities for young chemists of all types to connect with one another informally
- Offer programming which furthers the professional development of our younger chemists
- Promote involvement and increase awareness of younger chemists in both local and national ACS programs
- Encourage and support younger chemists as they transition into and establish their professional careers
Who is considered a younger chemist?
While most often found in the 18-35 demographic, a younger chemist is considered anyone not yet established in their career. Experience, not age, is the decisive benchmark!
