WA Branch AGM & Chemaraderie November 2022

WA Branch face to face networking event. All are welcome.

RACI WA Branch and Group Annual General Meeting (AGM) & Chemaraderie


5.30pm    Tuesday 15 November 2022

Curtin University, Exhibition Space, Building 500.


Speaker: Peter McCafferty, Chief Executive Officer, ChemCentre

Title: From Corroding the Carpet to the CEO


Peter McCafferty was appointed CEO in June 2017. Prior to this he was Director of the Scientific Services Division at ChemCentre. Before joining ChemCentre, Peter worked at WMC, Genalysis and Wesfarmers CSBP.
Peter has chemistry and business qualifications from Curtin University and is a graduate member of the Australian Institute of Company Directors. He has held positions with the Royal Australian Chemical Institute (RACI), Australian Water Association (AWA), Water Research Foundation (USA) and the Australian Institute of Management (WA). Peter is a recipient of the AWA’s Don Montgomery Award and the RACI’s Wilf Ewers Citation.
He has over 50 research publications, co-authored one book, and has represented ChemCentre at many state, national and international forums. In 2019 he was invited to join Curtin’s Molecular and Life Sciences Advisory Board.

Abstract: A series of observations and anecdotes from my ‘journey in chemistry’. What was it that sparked my curiosity for science and ignited a passion for chemistry (terms used specifically)? Fire and lead have featured prominently throughout my scientific journey that started in the ‘bushlands’ of Balga. 
I intend to take you on a journey that will conclude with a view to the future and research projects that illustrate how Western Australia has and will continue to punch above it weight in the mightiest of the sciences - Chemistry.

Details of Event

The AGM is an important part of the year. Please do not be afraid to come to this meeting for fear that you may be forced to join a committee or working group (that is not how the Branch works). The AGM takes up only a short portion of the evening, with the majority of the time being networking and the evening presentation. It would be hoped that most members can find time in their schedules and make the effort to attend.
·         The AGM is in the normal Chemaraderie venue (the Exhibition space in Building 500 Curtin University).
·         There is no charge for this month’s Chemaraderie as it is also our AGM.
·         Drinks and nibbles from 5.30pm
·         AGM from 6.00pm
·         Chemaraderie presentation at ~6.45pm
·         To be followed by more networking, drinks and nibbles.
