Why was she chosen for its Board of Directors? “CICC’s new General Manager, Lisa Johnson, and I share an interest in the scientific education of our youth,” Ms. Cimo said. “We both believe passionately that chemistry matters. She’s aware of the work I do as an organizer for the ‘You Be The Chemist®’ Challenge in California. She attended the state championship this year, and thereafter decided to commit CICC to the cause of STEM education.”
Ms. Cimo said, “It was this connection that led to my nomination and subsequent election to the Board of Directors. The member companies of CICC understand that to have an informed electorate and a talented future workforce, we must educate our youth on the value of chemistry.
In addition to this, “I will be a vocal advocate for science-based regulation of our industry, ensuring that our regulatory environment is sensible,” Ms. Cimo said. “Certain initiatives, such as the California Green Chemistry and Safer Consumer Products Initiatives, protect our environment, our workers, and are welcomed by industry as well.”
Ms. Cimo said that membership in the CICC has been valuable for Coast Southwest and that other firms in the chemical industry would find it worthwhile, as well. “Any business contemplating CICC membership would find itself in excellent company,” she said. “CICC provides a forum where member companies can share best business practices, strategies for compliance, and other information to enable us all to be successful in California.”
