The Michigan/Northwest Ohio Section of The American Ceramic Society is hosting the Toledo Glass and Ceramic Award Meeting on Thursday, April 22, 2010. The meeting will be held at The Toledo Club, 235 14th Street, Toledo, Ohio. Social hour begins at 6 p.m. with dinner and award presentation following at 7 p.m.
This year’s award will be presented to Michael Greenman, Executive Director, Glass Manufacturing Industry Council, for his years of dedicated service to the glass industry.
Remarks by Mr. Greenman:
“E Pluribus Unum – Vitrum, Id est” (Out of many, One – Glass [industry], that is)
The Toledo Glass and Ceramic Award recognizes distinguished scientific, technical or engineering achievements in glass and ceramics. Michael Greenman is receiving the award in recognition of his outstanding service and leadership in promoting glass as a remarkable material and in bringing together all segments of the glass industry, government and universities to cooperate and combine resources to improve the industry. As a result of his leadership, there is now more communication between individuals representing member companies without major concern over competitive factors. Among other things, this increased collaboration led to formation of a coalition to develop a new technology – Submerged Combustion Melting – which will benefit the whole glass industry.
Don’t miss this opportunity to be a part of the Award presentation, network with others in the glass and ceramic community, and hear a very intriguing presentation!
