The confidential sharing of relevant, timely, industry specific information with professionals in the chemical industry provides numerous benefits to NCCA members. Over my ten year association with NCCA, I have found the credit group meetings to b particularly worthwhile. These are excellent opportunities for members to get to know one another, providing valuable contacts and sources of information. Because the participants from member NCCA companies are outstanding individuals and true professionals, I have always benefited from the exchange of information and found my attendance at these meetings to be well worth my time.
