EAA

On April 11th, the Eastern Aerosol Association held their annual spring meeting at the Sheraton Hotel in Mahwah, NJ. This year’s meeting focused on raw material feedstocks for the aerosol industry, covering everything from steel and aluminum, to resins, alcohol, and propellants. Each of the presenters, experts in their respective fields, provided insight on global demands, alternative use demands, weather, general availability, and the status of existing and future manufacturing plants. In addition, two separate industry experts gave presentations on what to expect with the FDA and OSHA, and how to best work with the two agencies. Adam Selisker also spoke on behalf of the Alliance for Responsible Regulation about the LVP battle and the great things this newly formed organization is doing. By all accounts, the meeting was a big hit.

EAA’s Fall meeting will be held on October 10th at the Crowne Plaza in Clark, NJ. Stay tuned for the program agenda. And don’t forget about the Annual Golf Outing to be held on August 6th at the Crystal Springs Golf club in Hamburg, NJ.”

Thanks,
