Week of Feb 2-6, 2015
I’m getting ready for a flight ot Las Vegas to the Society of Protective Coatings (SSPC) and the World of Concrete annual meetings and exhibitions. On February 3rd, I will receive the SSPC John T. Keane Award fro Outstanding Leadership and significant contribution to the development of the protective coatings industry and to SSPC. The Board of Governors selects the awardees, not something you can place your own name into the hat. It was a total surprise. I am excited about this recognition by my peers.
Also I hope to put the near end to moving to publication new standards for Wet Abrasive Blasting cleaning. Thought that would get done last year (first started on this standard in 1985). Wet Abrasive Blast has gone through 3 chairman and back to me. Someone alwyas wants a different twist.
World of Concrete exhibition should be fun. I’ve never been to it, many of my supporters are there.
Paint on steel and Concrete are the foundations of our infrastructure. For many years, I have advocated holistic reforms in the maintenance. A few of my colleagues have listened.
