Last year, ILMA Board Member Chuck Decker, president of
American Oil & Supply International LLC (AOS), contacted
his alma mater, Monmouth University, and arranged for a
presentation to entrepreneurial students of the Leon Hess
School of Business who wanted to know more about the
manufacturing industry. Along with Decker, presenters included
AOS chairman and former ILMA president Stan Ziemski
(2001-2002), as well as ILMA's CEO Holly Alfano and general
counsel Jeff Leiter. Their presentation left 200 students with an
optimistic view of their futures, possibly in the manufacturing
sector, and maybe even as business owners. You can read all
about that successful presentation in Compoundings, December
2015 (Vol. 65, No. 12).
