NOBCChE Conference

It is our pleasure to invite you to attend NOBCChE’s 47th Annual Meeting, September 21-24 at the Rosen Shingle Creek in Orlando, Florida. Each year, the Annual Conference provides opportunities for networking and mentorship between students of all levels and professionals. In addition, the conference creates a venue for scientific dialogue through technical programming, as well as personal and professional development for students and early/mid-career professionals. Finally, the conference is a celebration of the history of the organization and the achievements of its members. Some of our signature events include the Winifred Burks-Houck Luncheon, the Percy Julian Luncheon, NOBCChE STEM Week (K-12), and the NOBCChE Awards Ceremony!
