2012 JPCL’s Clive Hare Honors

"JPCL’s Top Thinkers were selected through a multi-layered process that began with nominations from the publisher and editors of JPCL, industry persons who work closely with JPCL, and SSPC. The original list of nominees numbered 68 people from many countries, and from that group, 24 were selected, including, of course, Clive. Criteria for nomination and selection focused on dissemination of knowledge about protective and marine coatings, first through writing but also through teaching, researching, and leading industry organizations.

Additional criteria included original thinking, depth of expertise about particular industrial settings, such as the power industry, and evidence of having exerted influence that led to significant changes in methods, materials, or equipment.

Alison B. Kaelin, CQA, who has written many JPCL articles analyzing U.S. regulations affecting the industry, has an impressive career, one that in itself would qualify her as a Top Thinker. However, she was selected for the award not only for her many accomplishments, but especially because of her ability to analyze and interpret the short and long-term effects of pending and published regulations for the coatings industry."
