Board of Trustees update: Dec 2012

Joanne Lyall

14 Dec 2012

In September 2012, the Board of Trustees held its annual planning day to review performance and agree draft strategic objectives for SCI over the next three-year period. 

Our Vision is for SCI to be recognised by key influencers in industry, academia and government as a valuable source of multi-disciplinary knowledge and networking, encouraging innovation based on chemistry and related sciences for the benefit of society.

Our Purpose is for SCI to be an open, multi-disciplinary forum connecting scientists and business people in order to advance the application of chemistry and related sciences for the benefit of society

Our draft objectives for 2013-15 are to:

  • Inform, influence and interact on issues where SCI has the knowledge and networks to add value to society 
  • Inspire and support a growing, active, multi-disciplinary community of members from business, academia and the public sector who will create networks, share knowledge and be ambassadors for SCI
  • Strengthen SCI's reputation as a trusted source of  multi-disciplinary knowledge for industry and academia
  • Promote the benefits of the application of chemistry and related sciences to the government, industry, media and the public
  • Enhance the value of our assets (financial, premises, people and IP) to improve the long-term sustainability of SCI

The strategic plan (below) was shared at the Members' Forum in November to seek feedback. We welcome views from all members; please send your comments to communications@soci.org

Joanne Lyall
Executive Director, 2010-13
