SOCMA Announces President’s Leadership Award for Advocacy, Service

The Society of Chemical Manufacturers and Affiliates (SOCMA) announced that Stephen Munk, president of Ash Stevens, and Beth Bosley, president of Boron Specialties LLC, will be honored with the SOCMA President’s Leadership Award for their contributions to the specialty chemical industry through advocacy and service.

Munk and Bosley will be honored during the association’s 92nd Annual Dinner on Dec. 9 in New York.

Munk, recipient of the President’s Leadership Award for Excellence in Service, is a champion for SOCMA’s ChemStewards program.

“He not only has encouraged our ChemStewards managing director in his quest to create a paradigm shift in the program, but he has given his valuable time to provide leadership, guidance and perspective for a number of exciting new initiatives that will move our flagship environmental, health, safety and security program forward,” said SOCMA President and CEO Lawrence D. Sloan.

Bosley has served as chair of SOCMA’s Chemical Risk Management Committee and has maintained active involvement with the association while starting her own business. She regularly shares insight on chemical control laws at the annual Global Chemical Regulations Conference, travels to Washington, D.C. to participate in meetings regarding key issues impacting specialty chemical makers, and serves as a voice for the industry through her testimony on Capitol Hill about Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) reform.

 “No other SOCMA member volunteer in recent memory has contributed their time and expertise to the association as much as Beth has, particularly over the past several years,” Sloan said.
