Welcome! Bienvenue! Benvenido! أهلا بك! Selamat datang! 歡迎! On behalf of NACE leadership and staff,
welcome to CORROSION 2018. We are excited to have attendees arriving from over
60 countries, and we are very proud of the program we have designed for you
here in Phoenix. With so many exceptional new and returning programs and countless
opportunities for networking, we are confident you will leave here more
informed, better connected, and slightly exhausted!
This year marks NACE International’s
75th Anniversary and in celebration of this milestone, this week we are
commemorating our association’s achievements and creating pathways toward the
industry’s future. Seventy-five years is an amazing feat, and NACE members
should be proud about the impact we’ve had in changing the way society looks at
and addresses corrosion. NACE is
successful because its members have worked hard to make a difference. One of
the keys to the future is advancing NACE’s position as a thought leader on
asset management and there is no better person to help us chart our course than
NACE’s Keynote Speaker, Commander Mike Abrashoff.
Don’t miss Abrashoff’s keynote on
Tuesday, April 17, and later that morning he will join a Leadership Forum with
three of the industry’s leading authorities. They will share their insights
into career enhancing leadership skills. This will be an interactive session and
a great opportunity to ask questions and receive feedback.
Make the most out of your week and
take advantage of numerous opportunities to attend forums and symposiums, learn
about global developments and advances in corrosion mitigation, and meet your
colleagues and fellow members. And don’t miss the 419 exhibitors who offer
products and services valuable to every industry sector.
Thank you for joining us here in Phoenix. We hope this week exceeds your expectations.
