John F. Fletcher, the chairman of the ASTM D01 Committee on Paint and Related Coatings Materials and Applications, has officially stepped down from his post.

The technical support manager for Elcometer Limited exited the position after meeting the standards organization’s constitutional term limits, Elcometer announced in a statement March 7.

Fletcher was chairman of the committee for three successive two-year terms.

He will now serve as the first vice chairman in support of the new chair, Cynthia Gosselin.

Outstanding Service

Fletcher was recognized with an Award of Appreciation at the ASTM D01 meeting in San Antonio, TX, in January. With it, the organization acknowledged his outstanding service as an ASTM Committee Chairman spanning the beginning of 2010 through the end of 2015.

John Fletcher received the Award of Appreciation from Jeff Adkins, the ASTM D01 Committee staff manager, during the organization's January meeting.

The D01 Committee currently has more than 630 members and holds meetings twice each year, in January and June. It is supported by approximately 30 technical subcommittees and seven administrative committees.

Fletcher will continue in his role as chairman of D01 Subcommittee D01.23: Physical Properties of Applied Paint Films, which holds its Task Group and Subcommittee meetings on the Mondays when the D01 Committees meet.

The D01.23 Subcommittee has 31 standards under its jurisdiction.
