Hello fellow CCS Members & Friends!
With the covid infection rate appearing to be on the decline, the Board of Directors for the Cleveland Coatings Society voted to shift our Sink Or Swim to the Fall of 2021. The Event will be held at the Cleveland Airport Wyndham, formerly known as the Cleveland Airport Marriott. The same location as years gone by.
SINK OR SWIM, CCS's 64th Annual Tech Symposium's Theme is, "WHY WE PAINT, Decorating Protecting Our Surfaces". Four substrates will be among the surfaces addressed: WOOD, METAL, CONCRETE & PLASTIC.
For 2021 SOS, we are adding a Golf Outing on Monday, August 23rd! Don't forget your CLUBS!
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. Several presentations are now live on the site.
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.
