The American Ceramic Society’s Board of Directors took action in 2017 to improve ACerS efforts in education and professional development. The result was the formation of a new Class of the Society called The Education and Professional Development Council (EPDC).
The purpose of the EPDC is to stimulate, promote, and improve education and professional development within the ceramic and glass community.
