Ron Yocum, thank you for postponing your retirement in order to lead the American Plastics Council to a higher level of excellence. I remember working on joint projects with the Council for Solid Waste Solutions in 1990. As president of the Society of Plastics Engineers, I have first-hand experience working on joint projects with APC. Today, APC is operating at a higher level of excellence.
Ron´s message has been consistent and straightforward. The plastics industry has to remind people of the good things about our industry. If we don´t take care of that part of our business, we will all lose our business. Not many people know that because of the diligent efforts of Ron and his staff, a California law banning the use of plastics in store dairy cases was narrowly defeated.
So it is not about the relationship of the Society of the Plastics Industry Inc. and APC, it is about the relationship of the plastics industry with the general public.
So thank you, Ron, and I will personally continue to deliver the message about the good things about the plastics industry.
