President’s Message – February 2021

Dear PSCT Members,
I want to thank Carla Dittman McBain for her time in our January meeting to present on the topic of Hydrophobic Surfaces. It was fascinating to learn how little research was completed on this topic before the early 2000s and hearing the remarkable progress made since. This month we are privileged to hear from Mark W. Ellsworth, Ph.D. from Color Corporation of America, presenting on Transparent Water-Borne Pigment Dispersions.
It is a challenge to have distinguished speakers on topics relevant to the times each month. As a group, we are very fortunate to have Barbra Anderson, who works hard behind the scenes to fill these speaker roles. Barbra has begun scheduling speakers into the fall of this year and spring of 2022. If you or someone you know of would be interested in speaking at a future meeting, please have them reach out to Barb Anderson.
As we look forward to getting back to normal, with everyone meeting once again, please consider learning more about board and committee positions opening for 2021-22. Becoming more involved not only is a way to give back to PSCT, but is a great way to build relationships with others in the industry. If interested please reach out to anyone currently on the board.
Scholarships will be offered to eligible students who apply by the deadline of March 15, 2021. That is only a little of a month away. Please give a little encouragement to those eligible to begin the application process.
Lastly, a hybrid meeting approach will be offered in February, therefore, please join us either virtually or physically at Rolands Seafood Grill. Either way, I look forward to seeing everyone very soon.
Chris Chaousy
PSCT President 2020-2021
