The CPCA launched its new website highlighting the use of coatings products in everyday life and the environmental benefits derived from architectural, automotive and industrial coatings.
It also showcases how coatings help to reduce the environmental footprint of other industries.
It provides members with the critical data they need for important decision-making on a wide range of chemicals used in thousands of consumer and industrial products. Members can create their own individual dashboard, set priorities and identify resource types needed to do their job.
“We strongly believe that associations must manage the vast amount of data sources members need in a practical and functional manner rather than continue the practice of death by a thousand emails,” said Gary LeRoux, CPCA’s president and CEO.
The key is to sustain data over the long-term in an organized, cohesive and comprehensive manner. Users are able to track industry issues in real-time with filtering capabilities and resources categorized by industry issue.
The Canada CoatingsHUB provides member organizations with issue specific-resources, qualified news, and industry information to support issue management and regulatory compliance within their organizations. All resources are searchable by keyword.
CPCA’s Compliance Calendar alerts members to important compliance dates and deadlines.
“Over the years CPCA has always been service-oriented, engaging effectively with members, governments and multi-stakeholder groups to ensure our members have access to the information they need. This new digital approach takes it beyond the old ways of doing things and to the internet of things where we all now get our information,” said Tim Vogel, CEO of Cloverdale Paint and CPCA chair. “This new approach allows members to get the information they need, on their terms, without the fear of missing important compliance requirements, all delivered in a fully responsive manner. Members now can retrieve what they need, when they need it, on whatever platform they are using.”
