The German Chemical Society eV, which was created in 1949 through the merger of regional sub-societies for what was then the territory of the Federal Republic of Germany, is the successor organization of the German Chemical Society (founded in Berlin in 1867) and the Association of German Chemists (founded in 1887 in Frankfurt a. M.). After the dissolution of the Chemical Society (formerly CG of the GDR), its members could join the GDCh from the end of 1990. The GDCh has set itself the task of promoting science in the entire field of chemistry and its sub-and neighboring disciplines nationally and internationally in accordance with the principles of voluntariness and with the exclusion of party-political, denominational and racial aspects. At the same time, their activities are aimed at ensuring support for the general public. The acquisition of chemical knowledge and the dissemination of understanding of chemistry are tied to acting and judgmental people. The GDCh has therefore adopted the following code of conduct and statutes.
The GDCh commits itself and its members to stand up for freedom, tolerance and truthfulness in science, in particular to maintain and increase the reputation of chemistry as well as chemical knowledge and ability. All GDCh members are aware that, as scientists, they are particularly responsible for the effects of their professional activities on people and nature. The GDCh and its members support and promote sustainable and lasting development in society, the economy and the environment. They always act in the awareness of their responsibility towards future generations. They observe the laws and international conventions applicable to their work and its results and effects and oppose the abuse of chemistry, e.g. B. for the production of chemical weapons and addictive substances. When developing, applying and disseminating chemical knowledge, they are committed to the truth and do not use any unfair methods. Members who violate these principles damage the reputation of science and the profession. They can be excluded from the GDCh.
The purposes of the statutes for the promotion of science and the general public are essentially realized through:
The company has the following resources at its disposal for its statutory purposes:
Ordinary members are:
People working in chemistry and related fields as well as other people interested in chemical and molecular sciences at home and abroad, including students and people who are in vocational or school education.
The general assembly can nominate excellent supporters of chemistry and the goals of society as honorary members on the proposal of the board of directors. The honorary members have the rights of the full members without their duties. Honorary membership is the highest distinction that the society has to bestow.
Associate members are people from Germany and abroad whose training does not come from the field of chemistry and related areas and / or who do not work in this area and who are only interested in working in one of the specialist groups and / or sections of the society are. Only in these do they have the right to vote. The contribution regulations regulate the details.
Take care of the affairs of society:
The board of directors should be composed of people who have distinguished themselves through their achievements in the field of chemistry, and its composition should, if possible, also reflect the range of subjects in chemistry. It consists of 15 full members, whereby at the time of the election:
The board elected for the respective term of office elects its presidium, namely
