IYCN Executive Board
The finance team is striding to establish long term relationships with corporate sponsors regions, broadly apply for grants to fund project specific activities, and continue to collaborate with established chemical societies. It is also the responsibility of the finance team to manage IYCN's budget.
Social Media Chair
The aim of this committee is to establish and maintain an online presence for IYCN in various social media outlets. This includes the management of the IYCN website, Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn accounts, as well as the Wikipedia page.Furthermore, Social Media Team is in charge of publishing the quarterly IYCN newsletter, and advertising all events and actions of IYCN.
The governance team works on establishing and updating the IYCN statutes and by laws. Its role is to anticipate and resolve questions regarding governance (internal rules, formal relationship with IUPAC and other parties) that guide the actions of the network and guarantee the continuation of IYCN's four-pillar mission (collaborate, communicate, educate, mentor).
Conference Presence Chair
The conference presence committee's goals are to support the vision of the IYCN. We collaborate with international societies to cohost activities and to share resources to expand our network. We aim to have a presence at international conferences through flyers, oral and poster presentations, and virtually to connect with other young chemists across the globe.
Public Outreach Chair
The public outreach team is responsible for fostering produc-tive collaborations between IYCN and other international societies and organisations. We are also focused on promoting the visions of IYCN to the chemistry community through the opera-tion of exchange programs whilst also ensuring that chemistry is accessible to the wider community.

IYCN International Society Liaisons
The International Society Liaisons serve as a bridge between IYCN and other international societies and organizations. The Committee disseminates opportunities to collaborate, and establishes links between partners and IYCN. The Committee also assists the Executive Board by providing strategic and actionable advice for each potential collaboration, and facilitates communication and cooperation between relevant parties.
