PITTSBURGH—The clock is ticking on nominations of young coatings professionals and students to be recognized in the industry's leading journal.

Nominations for Coatings Professionals: The Next Generation must be submitted here by May 11. Nominees must be 35 years of age or younger.

JPCL Next Gen

Nominations for Coatings Professionals: The Next Generation must be submitted here by May 11.

Supervisors, professors and mentors are urged to submit nominations. Questions may be directed to Pam Simmons, JPCL's editor-in-chief.

Engaging Youth

"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 Simmons.

"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."

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.

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