The Adhesive and Sealant Council, Inc. has promoted Larry Sloan to the newly created senior director, Membership and Strategic Initiatives position. Since joining ASC in 2001, Sloan has played a vital role in strengthening ASC's membership services and building relationships with industry organizations and end-users. Under his leadership, ASC's outreach to member companies has improved dramatically, and he has spearheaded a series of new programs and benefits for members. Among the most important new areas Sloan has undertaken has been the program to organize ASC members for strong end-user education and industry growth programs. These programs, including Building the Industry (BTI), offer long-term value to Council members. Prior to joining ASC, Sloan worked for Nalco Chemical and Air Products & Chemical. In addition to his expanded role leading ASC's efforts in a number of strategic areas, Sloan will continue to oversee the overall membership and marketing activities of the organization.
