CCAI Establishes Education Foundation

Friday, January 10, 2020  

The Chemical Coaters Association International (CCAI) has announced the formation of 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. The Foundation received its IRS determination letter in May 2019.

Education is a key pillar of CCAI’s mission. This led to the formation of the Foundation, which 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,” shared Anne Goyer, executive director. Programs that will benefit from support of the Foundation include Workshops for Warriors, Women in Finishing, the Association’s extensive scholarship program, online education, and more.

CCAI and CCAIFEF will work closely together to develop programming and secure funding to support the Foundation’s mission. Leading this effort are the officers of CCAIFEF’s founding Board of Directors:

  • President, Sam Woehler, George Koch Sons LLC
  •  Vice President, Dr. Victoria Gelling, Sherwin-Williams
  • Secretary/Treasurer, James Malloy, Kolene Corporation
