CCAI Establishes Education Foundation
The Chemical Coaters Association International (CCAI) formed the CCAI Finishing Education Foundation (CCAIFEF), a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization established to support education and training in the industrial finishing and coatings arena.
Education is a key pillar of CCAI’s mission. This led to the formation of the foundation, which the group says will develop and deliver effective and affordable educational and training opportunities that support the industrial finishing and coatings industry.
“Through CCAI’s Finishing Education Foundation, we will expand our reach into educating the industry, and work to recruit the next generation of employees,” says Anne Goyer, CCAI executive director.
