RSC Elections.....President. My thoughts on Local Sections.....Roy Sandbach

Posted by Roy Sandbach on May 25, 2020 3:58 pm

Hi everyone,
I've just posted some of my thoughts on the importance of Interest Groups & I want to say a few words about Local Sections as well.

Although I've been involved with Division work with the RSC for many years, I've probably had my best times with my Local Section in Newcastle. What is better that a chemistry quiz with beer ! It's certainly better than watching my football club......another story. 
I remember turning up at that event and a local journalist friend was in the bar. I asked him whether he'd seen people that looked like they were chemists. He said no and asked why. I told him that we were the RSC and we were having a chemistry quiz.
He has wondered about me ever since !  

Seriously, Local Sections are our lifeblood and there are many vibrant communities. I'd love to visit more of them. But more to the point, while they have many members, I'd like to think that they could provide an even greater and flourishing local link to the RSC for students and younger scientists in the regions. I'd like to see Chemistry undergraduates and young University/working researchers get involved even more. There are some, but not enough. I would love to change this, while keeping the Local Section spirit that we have today.
Hope this makes sense. If anyone wants a chat, get in touch.
For now, I hope that you're all safe and well.

I appreciate and understand you Roy for sharing your thoughts on local sections. There are lots of issues we are facing right now and this kind of situation is inevitable but I am hoping they will have action for this.
