NACE International announced that its members have voted to approve the association’s proposal to combine with SSPC: The Society for Protective Coatings. During the two-week voting period, NACE said, thousands of its stakeholders worldwide cast votes with an overwhelming 89% in favor of combining forces with SSPC.

The vote came after more than a year of discussions between the member leadership of both organizations and a unanimous vote  by NACE International’s Board of Directors in favor of a resolution to bring the combination to a member vote.

“With what is clearly a resounding ‘yes,’ the NACE membership has spoken,” said NACE President Terry Greenfield. “As a member and as NACE’s president, I could not be more excited with this result. This will bring more benefits and resources to the members of both organizations, and it will have a strong and positive impact on the corrosion and coatings profession worldwide.”

Several steps are required before a specific timeline for completion of a combination can be set, and most changes will not be immediate. Initial efforts will be focused on determining the new governance and membership structure by Jan. 1, 2021.
