As a result of the impact of the COVID-19 (or coronavirus) pandemic, the Chemical Coaters Association International (CCAI, Lakewood Ranch, Fla.) has postponed the 2020 Women in Finishing Forum. The event has been rescheduled for April 28-30, 2021, and will be held at the Embassy Suites South Bend at Notre Dame in South Bend, Indiana. 

The 2020 Forum was scheduled to include presenters from John Deere, Carlisle Fluid Technologies, Graco Inc. and others. A tour of local manufacturer, Lippert Components Inc., finishing operations was to be a highlight of the event.

“Our goal is to ‘copy and paste’ the 2020 program into the 2021 dates,” says Sheila LaMothe, Women in Finishing program manager. “Nearly all of our speakers have already added the new dates to their schedule and intend to present.”
