The first meeting of the CAB is scheduled for Thurs., Aug. 11th at Noon on-site at 528 South Cherry Street.
“While Allnex is a leading global resins company, it prides itself on strong connections to its local communities,” DiCristina said. “As a Wallingford employer for 75 years, we recognize that Allnex is a part of the fabric of the community, and, in turn, the community in an integral part of the fabric of our company. We formed the Community Advisory Board because we know that companies are most successful when they maintain a mutually-beneficial relationship with the community.”
The Allnex CAB will be comprised of business and community leaders as well as Wallingford residents. Community members who are interested in serving on the committee should email the following details to Frank DiCristina at firstname.lastname@example.org: contact information including name, address and phone number as well as a statement of interest to include why the applicant would like to be considered as a board member and what value the applicant will bring to the board. Applications will be accepted until Fri., July 22nd, 2016.
The mission of the CAB, which will meet every other month beginning this August, is to enhance the dialogue between the company and its constituents. Board members will learn more about Allnex and will be invited to bring forth opportunities for further community collaboration. Responsibilities of the board members include serving as a community liaison, attending and actively engaging in meetings, and advising Allnex on opportunities to strengthen community involvement.
