Join the next generation of chemical distribution leaders! ACD invites candidates to apply to our 2024-2025 Emerging Leaders program to improve their business insight, leadership skills, and professional development. ACD has run the Emerging Leaders program for a decade with over 100 professionals across a spectrum of responsibilities.
ACD’s Annual Meeting allows our amazing community to come together for powerful presentations, lively discussions, and networking opportunities. For those few days every November, attendees are no longer competitors, but united as an industry.
I had hoped this time last year that, when looking ahead to the 2023 holiday season, we would be celebrating the successful reauthorization of Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards (CFATS) program, Generalized System of Preferences (GSP), and Miscellaneous tariff bills (MTB), and maybe even the passage of rail reform legislation. Alas, Congress has once again managed to accomplish so little that it is truly astounding. What Congress is becoming quite good at is kicking the can down the road.
