The National Paint and Coatings Association (NPCA) and the Federation of Societies for Coatings Technology (FSCT) are moving forward with a merger of the two organizations following a majority vote by FSCT members endorsing the merger plan. The FSCT Board of Directors certified the vote at its meeting on May 8, verifying that 84% of those members who participated in the voting process voted to approve the Bylaws changes necessary for the merger.

All aspects of the merger should be completed by June 3, 2008, at which time the new FSCT Board of Directors will convene for its first meeting.
