NPCA and FSCT
will remain as separate organizations managed through a common governing structure.
These concerns were apparent in a list of the top five issues expressed by a majority of Society leaders present in Orlando: (1) Increased manufacturer and technical member attendance at monthly meetings; (2) Company support of participation by employees; (3) New leaders and volunteers; (4) Increasing value of monthly meetings; and (5) Providing forums for communication between and among Societies and FSCT
It is obvious to me that the FSCT
by itself would never support a brief of this nature.
The merger will allow NPCA and FSCT
to enhance the overall quality and breadth of programs and services provided to the industry and to efficiently and effectively apply resources to industry priorities," said NPCA president Andy Doyle and FSCT
executive director Joe Pontoski in a joint statement.
He has worked for the FSCT
since 1996 as controller and director of administration and recently as secretary/treasurer under the new governance structure.
Meeting with the Society officers were FSCT
President Rick Hille, President-Elect Fritz Walker, and Secretary-Treasurer Rose Ryntz, along with other members of the Federation's Executive Committee and Staff.
