The Chemical Coaters Association International (CCAI) honored several members with awards and installed its 2014-2015 officers and national board members during the association’s annual meeting and Awards Luncheon in Indian Wells, California this June.
CCAI’s biggest honor, the James F. and David J. Wright Lifetime Achievement Award, was given to Central States Chapter member Sherrill Stoenner, of Stoenner Finishing Consultants. Sherrill joined CCAI 18 years ago in 1996 and is considered to be one of the leaders who helped CCAI become the industry’s leading educational association. Stoenner said, “This award was totally unexpected and is one of the greatest honors I have, or will receive, in my lifetime. I will cherish it forever.”
Bruce Bryan, of Mighty Hook, received the 25-Year Member Award for his service to CCAI’s Northern Illinois Chapter.
In addition to announcing board members for 2014-2015, the association presented the following members as the offers of its National Board of Directors: Kevin Coursin, president (KMI Systems, Northern Illinois Chapter); Ron Lum, vice president (Coral Chemical Co., Southern California Chapter); and Bill Oney, treasurer (American Finishing Resources, Wisconsin Chapter). Sam Woehler, of George Koch Sons LLC, is the recent past president.
