A local section of Younger Chemists’ Committee (YCC) here in central Ohio is being developed. The purpose of a YCC is to form a community of early career scientists interested in making connections with their peers in a professional yet informal setting. This organization will facilitate social, academic, and professional development events throughout the year, as well as work closely with national YCCs and the local Columbus ACS section to help our community expand and evolve.
In order to begin establishing this organization, this Survey Form has been provided for students to fill out. If you are interested in participating in the first event which will be held at Pins Mechanical Co. on October 26th from 6-8PM, please fill this out.
Please consider attending and getting involved with the Columbus Section YCC!
