Who We Are

Société was founded in 1918 in New York as the American Section of a French parent. Today, Société is an independent organization involved in a number of non-profit activities including our highly regarded and well attended monthly luncheons, featuring guest speakers the list of which includes CEOs and other C-Level executives, government leaders and the investor community, scientists and other chemical industry experts.

Through the support of our members Société also provides grants, fellowships and scholarships to students pursuing the study of chemistry.  In addition, The International Palladium Medal is awarded biannually by Société to honor an individual who has distinguished themselves by reason of outstanding contribution to the chemical industry.
