One of the goals of the Chemical Coaters Association International is to reach out to younger people and educate them about the career opportunities available in the finishing industry. To this end,the CCAI board of directors has approved the addition of a student membership category, to help generate interest in the finishing industry among students. Full-time students who are 16 years or older are eligible for a full-benefit, non-voting membership at the rate of US$20 per year. Proof of being a full-time student is required to receive the reduced fee, including a valid school email address (.edu), a current student identification card or current class schedule. Student membership benefits include unlimited access to CCAI TV training videos, and the option of posting content and participating in discussions of group and community forums on CCAI’s website. In addition, they may post resumes and search job openings in the online Career Center, and receive discounts on CCAI publications and training manuals. There are also discounts to attend industry education meetings, seminar, conferences and trade shows sponsored by CCAI, including chapter meetings, CCAI’s Annual Meeting and CCAI affiliated events. Membership can be in any chosen chapter, and includes a subscription to CCAI’s Finishing Touch newsletter and a listing on the members-only area of the CCAI website. This has a toll-free help line service. The photo here shows interested students attending the recent Fabtech 2015 in Chicago.
