With the new year started, we are pleased with our 2015 accomplishments but now have the task of maintaining that momentum and making 2016 all that it can be.
We already have a significant accomplishment under our belts as we have the PLASTIVAN scheduled to visit local schools on a week long tour this May. Please contact us if you would like to be a part of this excellent program in 2017 and beyond.
Coming up on March 29th is another significant endeavor as the Chicago SPE, along with the Extrusion Division and the Milwaukee SPE, are hosting the SHAPE EXTRUSION TOPCON in Gurnee, Illinois. This is a 3 day event with 20+ extrusion related technical presentations on a variety of hot button topics. Not to be missed if you are part of this industry.
Moving forward, I would like to reiterate that your SPE Membership can play an important part in your career and as well as your co-workers' careers. The best thing you can do to help create new membership is to be an advocate at your employer. All of the benefits of an SPE Membership can be found HERE
Another thing you can do to help the SPE Chicago and the industry as a whole is be an advocate of our Educational Foundation. They offer scholarships and grants to interested and deserving students. Please contact Kimberly Rush at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Also I want to mention the Color and Appearance Division also offers scholarships. More detail can be found at www.specad.org.
2016 is going to be a great year. Our thanks to all of our Supporters, Sponsors, and Friends. Stay in contact with us www.spechicago.org. Please come play and work with us.
