OCTC 36th Annual Conference Wrap-Up

Conference Presentations and Thank You!

The Ohio Chemistry Technology Council's (OCTC) 36th Annual Conference warped up after meetings and events on March 24 and 25, 2014 in Columbus, Ohio. OCTC is committed to being the voice of Ohio’s high-tech chemistry community, as we promote the vital role played by our industry throughout Ohio. The primary goal of our conference was to bring together Ohio’s leaders in the chemistry technology industry.

We were pleased to have such a diverse and dynamic group of speakers and panelists who provided in-depth insight and a unique opportunity for you to directly engage with them. We were grateful to be joined by our keynote speakers, Ohio Environmental Protection Agency Director Craig Butler and JobsOhio Senior Managing Director David Mustine. We were also thrilled to have a special visit from Governor John Kasich, who shared his priorities for 2014 and answered questions from you.
