Who We Are

Société de Chimie Industrielle was founded in 1918 in New York as the American Section of a French parent. Today, Société is an independent non-profit industry organization involved in a number of 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 and scholarships to students pursuing the study of any branch of chemical sciences.  In addition, the International Palladium Medal is awarded biannually by Société at a gala black-tie dinner held in New York City, to honor an individual who has distinguished him- or herself by reason of outstanding contribution to the chemical industry.
