PNWSCT and Industry Symposiums

A big part of the work of the PNWSCT is to sponsor, organize, promote and conduct recurring professional development and relationship-building events; symposiums, conferences, speakers, seminars and classes for you and your staff to build professional skills and foster good relationships.

Key among these events are the NW Coatings Festival, sponsored by us, the PNWSCT, and the Western Coatings Symposium, hosted by the Western Coatings Societies.

Also check our website and especially our events calendar to plan for upcoming industry-related events.
