CINCINNATI (Oct. 30)—The ACS Rubber Division is launching a restructuring that will give it an executive director and eliminate its current five-person staff. By July 1, 2001, the technical association will be managed by an executive director reporting to the division´s leadership, according to Toms B. Royal, division chairman from H.M. Royal Inc., and Rudy School, chairman-elect from R.T. Vanderbilt Co. Inc. Two coordinators will be hired to handle activities such as exhibitions, meeting arrangements and marketing, and two administrative assistants also will be added. The current staff "will be given consideration for future employment," the division said. They might transfer to other jobs at the University of Akron. The division also is working to obtain a long-term lease to remain on the UA campus, but could move to another Akron site barring the signing of such an agreement, Royal and School said. "It is not our desire (to relocate)," Royal said.
