The Akron SPE Section has a great history of being one of the premier sections for SPE International. For the future, our Section aims to continue on the path of spreading knowledge, strengthening skills, promoting education and promoting the industry to technicians, scientists, marketers, retailers and other plastics professionals.

The Akron Section will continue to bring innovation to our members by having creative and educational monthly programs. To stay up-to-date with the latest section events, please see our newsletters. In addition, we partner with other local professional trade groups to share knowledge and learn from best practices.
The Section will continue to support education with our Education Foundation, which awards several scholarships each year, and partner with the University of Akron Polymer Program while continuing to align with ACESS, a local engineering society, and the Akron Global Polymer Academy.

The Akron SPE section is sad to announce that Leonard E. "Gene" Buser, 80, passed away December 31, 2016 at Hanover House in Massillon after a brief illness.
Gene was a member of the Akron section for 45 years and was Section President in 1985-1986. Gene was one of the founders of the Education Foundation of the Akron SPE section which offers scholarships to Akron area students that are pursuing a career in plastics. His hard work and dedication helped to raise over $250,000 for the foundation and the section.
The Akron section would like to offer our condolences to Gene's family.
