I would like to personally thank those of you in attendance, which once again, made our SATA Spring Meeting and Aerosol 101 Education Course huge successes. Held every second year, the Aerosol 101 course provides an excellent opportunity for individuals in all areas of the aerosol industry a crash course in understand the package form we all love so much. A special thank you again, to Pierce Pillon for the excellent job and efforts of coordinating all of the speakers and logistics of the course. I and the SATA board received rave reviews after this year’s Events. In addition to thanking Pierce, I would like to extend my personal thanks to all the presenters for volunteering their time for this educational endeavor.
Irene Bolling, Larry Beaver and Ron Klimas, along with their Technical and Regulatory Committees were instrumental in coordinating the technical content of the Spring Meeting. I cannot stress enough how much effort goes into selecting timely topics and then recruiting experts in those fields to speak without the benefit of compensation. Lastly, I would like to thank all of my fellow board members (many unnamed in the message, but equally as important) who worked tirelessly to bring these meetings together.
As an industry we still face many challenges, including the LVP-VOC regulatory concerns, and I urge you to become and remain involved. SATA as an organization continues to excel because of the input and contributions from our membership. As always, I ask that you to let us know if you have a suggestion for a topic or speaker or if would like to get involved in one of the many committees available.
I hope all of you are looking forward to attending our SATA Fall Meeting being held in Destin, Florida, September 26 – 29. If you haven’t already, please mark these dates on your calendar. Enclosed is registration information for both the hotel and conference.
See you in Destin this September.
Eric Dann, SATA President
