The Chemical Coaters Association International (CCAI) says that it has postponed the 2020 Women in Finishing forum as a result of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The event has been rescheduled for 28-30 April 2021 and will be held in South Bend, IN, USA. Women in Finishing (WiF) is a platform aimed at fostering professional and personal development for women who have chosen or are pursuing a career in the industrial finishing industry.

‘Our goal is to ‘copy and paste’ the 2020 program into the 2021 dates,’ said Sheila LaMothe, Women in Finishing program manager. ‘Nearly all of our speakers have already added the new dates to their schedule and intend to present.’
