ASC appoints SOCMA’s VP as its new president

BETHESDA, US: The Adhesive and Sealant Council Inc (ASC) has appointed current vice president (VP) of government and public relations in SOCMA, William Allmond (Bill) as its president, effective 15 August. Allmond brings to ASC over 23 years of experience in association management and strategic operations.

Bill joins ASC from the Society of Chemical Manufacturers and Affiliates (SOCMA), where he worked for the past 10 years. In that role he transitioned and upgraded the association's government relations from a low key advocate on legislative issues into one that effectively led key policy priorities through increased staff and member company engagement strategies.

He launched SOCMA’s grassroots program, SOCMA CONNECT, significantly increasing member engagement in letter-writing campaigns and Congressional facility visits. In addition to his experience in government and public relations, Allmond also developed and led programs and services that increased member engagement and value propositions.

Allmond will succeeded former president Matt Croson, who joined the American Gear Manufacturers Association in June. At ASC, Bill will be responsible for the overall performance and financial health of the Council. He is also tasked with developing programs designed to grow the industry and enhance strategic partnerships and alliances, both within the industry and among key stakeholder groups that influence the industry.

“Bill brings a high level of energy, a strong background and experience in regulatory matters, and innovative thinking and creativity which will help us in driving the continuation of our long term strategic plan with the goal to grow the adhesives and sealants industry and provide more value to our members,” said Traci Jensen, ASC chairman of HB Fuller Company.

“I am very excited to join and serve the Adhesive and Sealant Council and delivering value to both our members and the industries we support. I am impressed with the Council’s history of success and latest strategic plan,” said Bill Allmond about his upcoming ASC presidency.
