President’s Message – October 2022

Dear PSCT Members,

Thank you to all who attended our Scholarship golf event on Thursday, September 8th.  We had another beautiful day on the course at Birdsfoot in Freeport, PA!  Thank you to our golf chair, Chris Gehly from Matthews Marking, who does a phenomenal job keeping the event running smoothly.  We’d also like to thank our sponsors (listed below) who graciously donated.  And, of course, none of this is possible without our dedicated golfers.  We had our usual bagpipe send-off and the foursome winners this year were Group 3: Ryan Yaworski, Stephan Uijtewaal, Tom Dressel and Matt Mock.  Congratulations!

We currently 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 would 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!

I would like to remind members that membership is still open and 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.

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 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 be served shortly before the presentation begins.

I hope you all have a great October.  Don’t worry, in about two weeks Starbucks should be coming out with their peppermint holiday coffees!

Best regards, Art Kasson, PSCT President 2022-2023
