President's Message- April 2014
Hopefully everyone is unthawing from the brutal winter. We also are seeing some signs of economic recovery and more people are landing in positions in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries. Personnally, I have taken on a role to help a small privately held chemical company to increase their presence in the Midwest and help them grow through getting their products specified in the architectural community.
We had a successful meeting on March 15th About 30 members attended to help brainstorm on ways to increase the value of ChemPharma. We have some major communication problems and our website is increasingly hampering our members ability to get information from other members as well as getting meeting notices out to members and nonmembers. Below are the minutes and actions that came out of the meeting. We need every member to step up and volunteer to either lead an evening meeting or work onthe website improvement team. PLEASE help! I believe in ChemPharma but if steps are not taken this year to make these improvements the organization will fold. Please send me an email of call me to tell me what you can do to help. Thank you in advance, and I hope to see a good turnout at the Spring National meeting.
