Ashland Inc., is global leader in providing specialty chemical solutions to customers in a wide range of consumer and industrial markets, including adhesives, architectural coatings, automotive, construction, energy, food and beverage, personal care and pharmaceutical, has announced that Dr. Keith Silverman, PhD., vice president of environmental, health and safety and product regulatory, has joined the board of governors of the Society of Chemical Manufacturers and Affiliates (SOCMA), the leading US-based trade association representing the specialty chemical industry.

SOCMA supports chemical manufacturers with commercial and networking opportunities, advocates for the passage of rational laws and regulation, and works to increase public confidence in the industry. Silverman was elected to the board last week during SOCMA's 94th annual meeting, according to a press release.

SOCMA's Board of Governors provides strategic direction, maintains fiscal responsibility and helps management develop business plans to deliver member value. Through regular meetings, the board ensures effective organisational planning and sees that association resources are managed responsibly.

Charles “Chuck” Bennett, vice chairman, Dixie Chemical Co., Inc. said, “With new initiatives and our efforts to continually refine and improve the programs we offer our member companies, we are pleased to welcome Dr. Silverman to SOCMA's Board of Governors. Keith brings a wealth of expertise to the table, and with his insight and experience, I am confident that together we can successfully lead this organisation forward.” (GK)
