The Integrated Chemists of the Philippines (ICP) warmly welcomes two new groupings into the accredited professional organization of registered chemists and registered chemical technicians in the country: the ICP Bicol Chapter and the ICP Unilab Cluster.
The ICP Bicol Chapter was formally introduced during this year’s annual chapters’ meeting in Cebu City. The newly formed chapter is headed by its chapter president Mr Michael Montealegre, a chemistry professor at Bicol University. As discussed during the chapters’ meeting, Mr Montealegre has laid out plans to improve the presence of the chemistry profession in his area of jurisdiction such as the chemistry profession awareness campaign in different high schools and making chemical laboratories fully comply with the Chemistry Profession Act of 2015.
Meanwhile, the ICP Unilab Cluster was formally launched last June 10 at the Unilab Laboratories complex in Mandaluyong City. ICP President Dr Fabian Dayrit, ICP Treasurer Dr Lilibeth Coo, and ICP Board Member Dr Rosalinda Torres were present in welcoming the newly established cluster, which is composed of over a hundred chemists and chemical technicians, and headed by its inaugural cluster president Mr Arjay Cubos.
Once again, welcome to the ICP! Let us all work together to further enhance the state of the chemistry profession and to uplift the welfare of chemists and chemical technicians in the country!
