Within our Branch we have established a range of specialist interest groups. They have been formed to encourage networking and other events between members who have a particular area of interest, and to encourage the wider chemistry community to participate. We'd love you to be involved.
These groups comprise:
Regular events and Awards
Our Materials Chemistry Division is very active in holding regular events. Highlights include:
- Western Australia held many regular event such as Global Womens Breakfast, Science Week Branch Awards dinner, Student Careers Night, WA Analytical group "Hackers" Golf day, Instrument trade show.
- W E Ewers Citation Award :- The citation recognises contributions made to furthering the profession of chemistry. It is expected these contributions will normally be made by virtue of the nominee’s activities within and for the RACI West Australian Branch. The Wilf Ewers citation is not meant to cover achievements in chemical science and technology since these are recognised by other RACI awards such as the H G Smith and Applied Research Medals.
- A McA Batty Medal :- This award is to be made to a member of the WA Branch who has made an outstanding contribution to chemistry, in particular, in the field of chemistry applied to industry or commerce, to the environment or to the quality of human life. Awarded not more frequently than biennially.
