“I look forward to working with the board and the Society of Chemical Manufacturers and Affiliates’ staff these next two years, as we continue building membership and promoting the valuable programs and services our association offers specialty chemical manufacturers,” Bennett said. “Without the support of a dedicated industry organization like SOCMA, I do not believe most specialty chemical companies have all the resources internally to ensure top environmental, safety and business performance.
