Long Time TRANSCAER® Sponsors Switch Roles
(Arlington, VA) The Chemical Educational Foundation (CEF) is switching its TRANSCAER® sponsorship to its parent organization the National Association of Chemical Distributors (NACD) effective October 1, 2008.
The reason for the switch is to provide NACD members with a more direct line of communication, which w ill in turn increase the level of TRANSCAER participation with its membership.
The Chemical Educational Foundation, which is a national non-profit organization that works with chemical industry members to foster a greater understanding of the value and benefits of chemistry, chemicals, and chemical safety awareness, has been involved with TRANSCAER for many year. Prior to CEF’s involvement in TRANSCAER, NACD was the initial sponsoring agency.
“The on-going support the National TRANSCAER Task Group has received from John Rice and his staff at CEF has been tremendous over the past several years,” said Rollie Shook, Chairperson of NTTG. “However, our direct access to NACD members through Mike Lang, Director, Responsible Distribution Process, is going to prove even more advantageous to everyone involved in the TRANSCAER organization to help further enhance training opportunities within the distribution member companies.”
The National Association of Chemical Distributors (NACD), established in 1971, is an international association of chemical distributor companies that purchase and take title of chemical products from manufacturers. Member companies process, formulate, blend, re-package, warehouse, transport, and market these chemical products exclusively for an industrial customer base of approximately 750,000.
