I would like to introduce myself as the new publisher of Adhesives & Sealants Industry. I’m looking forward to learning more about you and would like to tell you a little more about myself. Originally from Cleveland, OH, I graduated from the University of Toledo with a bachelor’s degree in communications. I currently live in Houston, TX.

I’ve worked in the media industry for nine years and have been with ASI for five years as the regional sales manger for the Midwest, Southwest, and West. ASI is focused on bringing you information that will help your business succeed in 2011 and beyond. To that end, I believe it’s important to hear about your challenges and successes, and I look forward to visiting you and meeting you at key industry tradeshows and seminars to better understand the industry.

New for 2011, I am pleased to announce that ASI is introducing a green-focused e-newsletter. The quarterly Green Opportunities e-newsletter, set to launch next month, will provide a roundup of adhesives and sealants news and issues related to renewable energy, sustainability, and all things green. To sign up for the new e-newsletter, visit the ASI website at www.adhesivesmag.com and scroll down to ASI eNews. Clicking the Subscribe button will give you the opportunity to request Green Opportunities, as well as our popular weekly ASI E-News.

We have an exciting year planned for ASI, with new editorial topics on composites and coatings, as well as expanded coverage of topics such as the packaging of adhesives and testing/quality control. We will continue to provide top-quality content through multiple platforms-including print and digital editions, websites, e-newsletters, and various social media drivers-so you can receive the information you need in the format you prefer.

The rebounding economy should provide many new opportunities for our industry, and we at ASI are optimistic for the future. Please feel free to contact me at (614) 554-0035 or vallancea@bnpmedia.com with your questions, comments or suggestions.
