Announcements

IPEIA Members… this “impacts” you…

Globally the IMPACT study has provided data that has been used to keep government officials, regulators, industry and the general public informed about corrosion control management practices and the associated reduction of corrosion costs. The data has been instrumental in the development of public policy, standards, and corrosion management planning.  This will translate in support for our teams, companies, industry and country in general.   

This IMPACT Canada study is an extension of global IMPACT study. 

For more details on how to participate in this study, click here.

The PR Committee has a large scope so recently we have broken it into the following sub-committees:

  • Sponsorship
  • Exhibition
  • Events & Registration (Spousal, Exhibitor Appreciation, Volunteer Reception, Networking Event, Delegate Registration, etc.
  • Communication (Website, app, social media, marketing, etc. )

Each of these committees meets monthly, we try to provide both in person and call-in options. Each committee chair then attends the monthly steering committee meetings on the committees behalf. There is a time commitment requested of our volunteer in-between the monthly meetings to help us complete tasks, phone calls, planning, etc.

We believe in playing to people’s interests and strengths. We want to help set you up for success within the committees.
