We're Working on 2021 SOS
August 23rd - SOS Golf Outing
August 24th - Symposium & Exhibition (Day 1)
August 25th - Symposium (Day 2)
Hello fellow CCS members,
With the covid infection rate climbing as we enter the fall season, the Board of Directors for the Cleveland Coatings Society voted to shift our Technical Talk meetings to a virtual format. The meetings will be held monthly starting in January and are free for all members in good standing. Details will be shared via email and on our website, clevelandcoatingssociety.org, as we get closer to January.
In the meantime, please take advantage of the free Virtual Sink or Swim 2020 presentations, which you may access via https://www.clevelandcoatingssociety.org/sink-or-swim. Two of the presentations are now live on the site with more to come.
Speaking of Sink or Swim, I want to take a moment to thank our sponsors:
• Alberdingk-Boley USA
• Brenntag Specialties
• Hall Technologies
• Maroon Group
• PolyAziridine LLC
• Specialty Polymers
• Stonebridge Laboratories
In addition to supporting Sink or Swim in 2020 and 2021, their contributions make it possible for us to continue awarding scholarships for continuing education/college for our members and their children. Indeed, this year we have six four-year scholarship recipients and one single-year scholarship recipient, so please join me in expressing appreciation for our sponsors' support.
Finally, thank you all for continuing to renew your memberships when they come due. Without your support and participation, there would be no Cleveland Coatings Society. We look forward to getting back to our great events like the CCS golf outing, Whing-Ding and our flagship event Sink or Swim once covid is under control. Until then, please take care and join us in cyberspace.
