Comments from the TCC Leadership—What is the RPC?

By Linda Goldberg, Director, Technical Activities

"What is the RPC?" I hear that question frequently because we normally use the acronym instead of the longer name, Reference Publications Committee (RPC). This administrative committee of the TCC is responsible for reviewing all draft standards and reports for organizational, structural, and editorial issues before they are published.

One area of special interest for Specific Technology Group (STG) 11, "Water Treatment," is reaching out to young professionals who are in industrial water technology jobs to provide knowledge transfer and training in the basics of the field. One of these outreach efforts is STG 11's "Water Treatment Technical Information Exchange (TIE)" at CORROSION 2013, Thursday, March 21, 8 to 11 a.m., in Orlando, Florida, USA.

This TIE will include presentations by industry experts on basic water technology "building blocks" and ample opportunity for water technology professionals to expand their knowledge, ask questions, and, most importantly, bring examples of specific problems to be reviewed by other attendees.

STG 10—Managing Corrosion with Polymers

Specific Technology Group (STG) 10's Technology Exchange Group (TEG) 239X is launching a new theme for its CORROSION 2013 program on Wednesday, March 20, 2013, from 8 a.m. to noon, in Orlando, Florida, USA.

The "Nonmetallic Materials of Construction: Basic Education" program features a "Nonmetallic Experts Panel Discussion." A panel of seasoned veterans in the field of fiberglass reinforced plastic (FRP) composites, thermoplastics, and linings, who represent all segments of the market from suppliers to end users to industry consultants, has been assembled for this program. Each panel member brings unique corrosion experiences that they will share during the meeting.
