NACD Blog: Annual Meeting Charity Drive Provides Food for Thought

There were certainly plenty of talking points at this year’s Annual Meeting, and the consensus among all who attended was that it was a resounding success. I’d go so far as to say it was one of the most complicated to arrange– given all the COVID-19 protocols and the additional security requirements from having a former U.S. President join us. And in my humble opinion, I truly believe it was also one of our best Annual Meetings ever.

Reasons to be Thankful

Thanksgiving is always a good time for reflection; taking a moment to remind yourself of all your accomplishments, goals that have been reached, projects that have been completed, new customers that have been secured.

Chemistry: The Glue that Keeps Us Together, Even When We're Apart

This year, during National Chemistry Week, we’re reminded just how much sticking with chemistry is keeping us together, while apart. For NACD and our members, we have always known the incredible power and impact that chemistry has on our daily lives, but even I have been blown away this year observing how critical our industry is to the vitality of America’s supply chain and to our ability to persevere in the midst of a global pandemic.

Led by the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) and the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA), this October is National Cybersecurity Awareness Month. This campaign represents a vital partnership between government and industry. Now in its 17th year, Cybersecurity Month aims to raise cybersecurity awareness across the United States, helping all Americans access resources to stay safe and secure online while empowering the public to own their role in cybersecurity and increasing our nation’s resilience to cyber threats.
