That is why I like to give back to the community by serving on the SPE-CAD Board of directors. I think one of the best things about our group is the fall RETEC meeting. I’m proud that for the past few years I’ve had the honor of coordinating the review of the papers that make the RETEC what it is- the best conference for the coloring of plastics in the world. I really enjoy the technical aspects of reviewing the material and ensuring that the RETEC high standards are maintained. Also, as official photographer I get to take all the pictures at the RETEC, so yes, that was me with the annoying flash. Thanks for your consideration, and I hope that you grant me the opportunity to actively contribute to the SPE-CAD as a board member.

I am grateful for the opportunity to give back to the industry that has provided me with so much over the past 20 years. Thank you in advance for considering me for the CAD Board of Directors.
