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.

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.
