Michelle HinesMichelle Hines. As National Secretary for the Society, my priority will be to promote effective communication to our chapters and support the initiatives of the Executive Board. Our society is composed of chapters geographically spread across the country. This makes it important that we identify ways to share information from National and between chapters to ensure transparency. The National SCC is strongest when we are able to harness the excitement and passion of all our members and work as one to support our mission to further the education of industry professionals. I will continue to support the current initiatives of our Society to deliver training opportunities through webinars to members across the country. I will encourage the growth of our Next Gen Initiatives to encourage participation of the rising professionals in the cosmetics industry and foster understanding for the need of professional organizations like the SCC. Building strong lines of communication with National and between chapters, we can share in the successes of each individual chapter and build a platform for the continued success of our society.  READ MICHELLE’S FULL BIO

Michele MargheritaMichele Margherita. I am pleased to be considered for Area I Director.  I have been a member of SCC for over 10 years and enjoyed my stint as CT Chapter Chair, a small but dedicated chapter where we concentrate on continuing education, as well as recreation.  I feel the role of Area Director is to promote communication between chapters and national as well as between chapters to promote best practices and share ideas.  Though each chapter has unique challengers, we can all learn from each other’s successes and mistakes to make sure we are serving our membership.  If elected I would like to encourage chapter chairs to share information on how best to recruit speakers, poll members to make sure we are meeting their expectations and be a resource to the chapters so they receive all the support they need from National SC to be successful. READ MICHELE’S FULL BIO



Jacklin HoffeltJacklin Hoffelt. I want to work as a liaison between National SCC and the Area III chapters to provide communication, ideas and opportunities available to members. I also want to promote chapter growth through open communication between chapters especially the pros and cons of local meetings/events.  Helpful ideas and programs that other chapters have been able to provide as a benefit to its membership.  This would include reaching out to chapters outside the Area III to get new ideas and speaker topics to keep the general membership engaged in the local chapters. READ JACKLIN’S FULL BIO


Jim VlasicJim Vlasic. As a longtime member of the Society of Cosmetic Chemists and Chapter Chair of the Twin Cities for three terms, I am looking forward to having an opportunity to represent Area III to the National SCC. The Area Director serves as a conduit between the local Chapters and the National board. It is important that the ideas and concerns of each Chapter, regardless of size, be communicated upward to the National level. It is also equally important that the Chapters are in turn informed of the activities and communications from the National level. Knowledge is an important factor in helping all become smooth and effective communicators. READ JIM’S FULL BIO
