President’s Message – September 2022

Dear PSCT Members,

Here we are at the start of the 2022-2023 year for PSCT!  Welcome back. We are starting the year off with our Scholarship Golf Event in September at Birdsfoot.  If you haven’t signed up or would like to be a sponsor please contact Chris Gehly, our golf chair at  As usual we would like to thank our generous sponsors and golfers for supporting this yearly event.  The event is Thursday September 8th with an 11:00AM shotgun start.

I would like to remind members that September is the time to renew your dues for PSCT.  Anyone who signs up for membership by September 30th will be eligible for a special prize we give at our October meeting.  This year we will celebrating the 95th year of PSCT so our prize will be $95.00.  In the same breath, I would encourage anyone who is interested in advertising their company or sales/business development team to contact us and let us know you would like to post your cards or advertisement in ¼, ½ or full-page advertisements in our monthly newsletter.  These advertisements help support the operational fund for PSCT.

We are encouraging and making an effort to increase student membership this year.  If you know of any college-aged students who would benefit from our attending our monthly speakers or speaking to people within the coatings industry we would encourage you to send them our way.  Student membership is only $10/year. 

Our first speaker of the year will be Jeff Niederst, Global Marketing Director from Sherwin Williams. The talk will be on “BPA Free Packaging Coatings” and is currently scheduled for Monday October 17th, 2022 at 6:00PM. The presentation will be offered both virtually and in-person at Roland’s and dinner will follow the presentation.

Finally – we have an opening for Vice President in our organization.  If you have an interest in serving the coatings community then I would encourage you to apply.  This is a 3-year position and you will cycle from Vice President to President to Past President (all 3 are voting positions for the board).  It’s a great way to give back to this community!

Best regards, Art Kasson, PSCT President 2022-2023
