Coating industry to announce new association, new logo
To create a unified voice for the corrosion control and protective coatings protection industries, a new organization will be unveiled at a virtual global launch event on Jan. 6.
The new association’s CEO Bob Chalker will host the event where the new name and logo will be introduced.
Houston-based NACE International, The Corrosion Society; and Pittsburgh- based SSPC: The Society for Protective Coatings have combined their decades of corrosion and coatings expertise and resources to create a new organization representing today’s global workforce skilled in materials protection and performance.
The new non-profit organization will consist of two governance structures under one umbrella — a 501(c)(6) to manage membership, certification, accreditation and advocacy; and a 501(c)(3) providing standards and technical activities, conferences and events, education and training, research activities, publications and pre-professional programming.
