Ways to Celebrate with SOCMA
Our centennial celebration will culminate on October 20-22 at the 2021 SOCMA Annual Conference in New Orleans, LA.
Join in the celebration and reconnect with professionals in the specialties value chain to trade operational best practices, discuss industry trends and identify solutions to pain points with colleagues facing the same issues.
In addition to a host of education sessions, we will also recognize the recipients of our 2020 and 2021 Performance Improvement Awards.
Specialty Insights is a semi-annual publication especially designed for association members and those interested in the specialty and fine chemical value chain.
