These valuable connections have the power to foster partnerships, facilitate the exchange of insights, and inspire collaborative efforts that drive innovation and success at Soltex.
Another Soltex attendee, Bryan De La Rosa also experienced the benefits NACD offers to those in the chemical industry. “The NACD hosted Washington fly-in was a big success for our group. The event allowed us to not only meet with our local and regional government representation, but it also allowed us to bring forth challenges that we are facing in the market and gives us an arena to discuss future or current political changes that will directly impact our industry. The NACD does a great job at keeping all its members informed about these challenges and making the trip to Washington allowed us to follow up on these face to face. The event also provided a great opportunity for meeting and networking with industry leaders that are associate members of the NACD which is always a positive.”
The Value of Emerging Leaders
The Emerging Leaders program offered by NACD holds immense value. This program provides a platform for young professionals to cultivate their leadership skills, gain insights from industry veterans, and foster personal growth. By participating in this program, Roussell was able to leverage his experiences and expand his capabilities as a leader within Soltex. As he continues to develop his leadership skills, Soltex stands to benefit from his enhanced decision-making abilities, strategic thinking, and industry acumen. The Emerging Leaders program serves as a catalyst for Jarrod’s continued growth and development, contributing to both his personal success and the overall growth of Soltex. Roussell stated, “The NACD fly-in was a very good experience. Meeting an actual representative from congress was a personal highlight, and being able to advocate for change particular to our industry was an inspiring experience.”
