The last meeting was well attended and we all learned about RJG Training from Todd Bryant. Understanding the training issues of injection molding cannot be over emphasized, and for injection molding companies that is where the rubber meets the road and the money is made. A well trained workforce makes money and that is what it is all about.
2015 was a good year and we made money again for our education fund and to keep us going. Thank you for your help and support! However, the greatest gift is having you participate in person. We have 261 active members and if you live in or around Charlotte, there is no excuse not to come! 41 members that are, or were associated with us are from Charlotte, 3 from Concord, 5 from Fort Mill, 3 from Pineville and 5 come from out of state, Rock Hill in South Carolina, including me.
Years ago, my father sat me down and gave me what was some of the best advice I have ever received. It had nothing to do with making money but everything to do with getting ahead in the world. It was self-help advice that really focused on helping others.
He told me I would never have any trouble finding opportunities. And he told me that 20-25 percent of my time should be devoted to this pursuit.
“Volunteer,” he said. Not exactly music to the ears of a broke, fresh out of college, aspiring millionaire. But as I have come to appreciate, he was dead-on right – AGAIN.
Volunteering has made my life so much better, and I suspect that anyone who has become passionate about a cause will tell you the same thing.
It’s Monday morning. Your alarm goes off, and you slowly spill out of bed. You shuffle along to the kitchen and pour a fresh cup of coffee in your favorite mug — all set to start a new work week.
But as you reach for some sweetener to add in, your arm knocks the mug off the counter, shattering it on the floor. How do you replace it?
Not long ago, the only solution would be to go back to the store where you bought it and hope they have another one. That mug from your vacation eight years ago is out of stock? You’re out of luck.
Today, you can search online at any number of retail websites — type “coffee mug” into Amazon, and you get 4.6 million results — but you still have to wait at least a couple of days for it to be delivered.
Ten years from now, you may simply fire up your 3-D printer, download an electronic file and make a new coffee mug in your home.

Kasey Britt from Mount Gilead, NC won the “Wonder of Plastics” Essay Contest
Plastics Innovation in Sports
What is innovation? To me, innovation is change in a new, more creative perspective. An innovation enhances the world around us and is involved in everything we do. An example of an innovation is plastic. In particular, plastic is involved in most sports and has caused a revolution to the sporting world. Plastic is contained in most safety materials and is also in most sporting
goods such as running shoes, hiking shoes, clothing, and drills equipment. Plastic is also contained in sports-related venues such as tracks and stadiums.
