Young coatings professionals and students have an opportunity to show the rest of the industry what they're made of in an upcoming special issue of JPCL.

Coatings Professionals: The Next Generation, to be published in August, will feature up-and-comers working in the protective and marine coatings industry.

"Over the past few years, many of our industry’s gurus and rock stars have retired or are heading in that direction, after having spent decades furthering the technology and techniques for preventing corrosion with protective coatings," said Pamela Simmons, editor in chief of JPCL.

Seeking New Blood

"SSPC is currently focused on engaging the younger workforce, and JPCL is interested in editorial contribution from a new generation of coatings professionals—a generation that works differently than those of the past, a generation comfortable with technology and accustomed to information on demand."

JPCL annual bonus issue

Nominations for young professionals and students to appear in a special JPCL issue in August may be submitted here.

Many established professionals in the coatings industry are working hard to ensure its future "by embracing younger workers, taking these individuals under their wings and passing on the knowledge they’ve acquired over the years," said Simmons

These supervisors, professors and mentors are urged to submit nominations. Nominees must be 35 years of age or younger.

Best & Brightest

Nominations may be submitted here. Questions may be emailed to Simmons.

"With every passing decade, new blood comes into this industry in the form of contractors, formulators, engineers and more," Simmons says.

"JPCL is proud to dedicate our 2015 annual bonus issue, coming this August, to the introduction of some of the best and brightest."
