The SPI Molders Division named David Hidding to succeed Donald Dew as chairman for a three-year term that will begin June 1.

Divisions restructure conference format
Arrangements for annual gatherings of three Society of the Plastics Industry Inc. divisions will change next year.
A joint conference of Machinery Division and Moldmakers Division members is set for May 1-5, 1999, in Scottsdale, Ariz.
The Molders Division plans to hold a 1999 executive retreat, rather than continue its practice of holding a joint conference with the Moldmakers. Details for the retreat still are being worked out.
