BETHESDA, Md. — Continuing in the Adhesive and Sealant Council’s (ASC) longstanding tradition, this year’s Summer Leadership Conference will be held June 25-28, 2000, at the Westin Resort in Hilton Head, S.C.

The conference is for senior-level management looking for an unparalleled networking and educational experience. This is where leaders in the industry meet and get to know each other, take time for professional development, and relax.

Some of the conference sessions include: a presentation by John McDevitt, 3M, who will give an economic overview of the industry; a hands-on program about being creative in your business, led by Andy Stefanovich, founder of Play, a creative agency recognized as one of today’s leading business and marketing agencies; a presentation on renewable advantage and the changing rules of business on the Internet, by Jeff Williams of Carnegie Mellon University; and a presentation by Scott Simon, an award-winning journalist and host of NPR’s Saturday Edition, on the stories he has covered around the world, today’s politics and baseball.

There are several tours and a spouse program planned. For more information about the conference, contact the ASC at 301-986-9700, or visit the Web site at
