President’s Message – January 2023

Dear PSCT Members,

Happy New Year!  We wish you all a prosperous and healthy 2023.  I hope you all had a nice holiday break and come into the New Year refreshed and excited for everything 2023 has to offer.

Unfortunately, the December event at the Breakout Room did not happen.  We didn’t have enough people sign up and needed to cancel.  I am looking forward to seeing what we can do to make our Spring event in May a success.  Ideas are most certainly welcome.  Please let anyone on the board know if you have some venues in mind.

The application deadline for the Hiram P. Ball Memorial Scholarship is March 15th, 2023.  A template scholarship form will be available at the end of this newsletter or you can access online at Applicants must be children of active members who meet eligibility requirements and have attended 4 PSCT events in 2022-2023 or student members who meet eligibility requirements.

Over the next month we will be making some revisions to our by-laws regarding the definition of Corporate Membership. In order to update the by-laws, those updates must be posted to the group and then reviewed and voted on over the next two meetings.  This month we are doing the posting in a section below and then will be voting on the changes in the next months.  This change was prompted because there was no definition of this type of membership in the by-laws.

Please join us on Monday January 9th at Rolands for our monthly speaker series.  Our first speaker for 2023 will be Tim Chen who will be presenting about renewable products and sustainability at BYK.  Tim and BYK have been long-time supporters of the PSCT and his talks always offer interesting perspectives.  We will also be hosting this talk online for those who can’t make it in-person.  Please RSVP either way.

I would like to remind everyone 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  business cards or advertisement in ¼, ½ or full-page advertisements in our monthly newsletter.  These advertisements help support the PSCT. 

We look forward to seeing you all at the start of the year!

Best regards, Art Kasson, PSCT President 2022-2023
