AIChE National Capital Section Dinner Meeting 
Featuring Dr. Maria Burka and Ms. Courtney Johnson

Public Affairs and Information Committee: Serving Society and Interacting with Government 

The Public Affairs and Information Committee (PAIC) is working to expand AIChE’s interaction 
with government, prioritize issues that impact chemical engineers, and develop tools for 
members conducting outreach at the grassroots level. Learn about the PAIC process, and the 
issues that are currently receiving the most attention.

About the Speakers:  

Maria K. Burka is the current Chair of the AIChE Public Affairs and Information Committee. Dr. 
Burka is the director of the Process and Reaction Engineering (PRE) program at the National 
Science Foundation. Her responsibilities include evaluation and management of research and 
educational grants to academic institutions in the areas of chemical and biochemical reaction 
engineering, process control and process design.

She received B.S. and M.S. degrees from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and M.A. 
and Ph.D. degrees from Princeton University, all in chemical engineering. She has been active in 
a number of professional organizations including the American Institute of Chemical Engineers 
(AIChE), the American Chemical Society (ACS), the Society of Women Engineers (SWE) and the 
American Association of University Women (AAUW), and was the President of AIChE for 2011.

Courtney Johnson, formerly with the House Committee on Energy and Commerce Democratic 
staff, joined the Alpine Group after nearly five years on Capitol Hill. She is currently engaged in a 
diverse work portfolio, which includes issues primarily within the healthcare, energy, and 
environment sectors. She has an extensive network on the Hill and in-depth knowledge of the 
legislative process. 

Prior to joining the Alpine Group, Ms. Johnson worked in various capacities on the House 
Committee on Energy and Commerce Democratic staff. During her tenure on the Committee, she 
focused primarily on issues associated with energy policy, but was familiar with the myriad of 
matters under the purview of the Committee. Ms. Johnson was involved with the numerous 
iterations of legislation which evolved into the Energy Policy Act of 2005. Ms. Johnson 
developed and has maintained strong relationships with staff on the both sides of the aisle on 
the Committee and in personal offices.
