TCC members continue to identify areas where lack of knowledge or standards have hindered the progress of corrosion management, and work to overcome these deficiencies through continuous improve- ments in dissemination of knowledge, assistance in educating corrosion profes- sionals and the public, and addressing key, urgent issues through symposiums and forums held worldwide. Control of the impact of corrosion on the environment is not limited to industri- alized countries but must expand to every corner of the world. In response to this need, the TCC established processes through Section Technology Advisory Groups (STAGs) to expand activities world- wide, allowing members to address their local and regional needs for corrosion- related technical information exchanges and the development of standards and guidelines. Such approaches are enabling our members to educate and influence decision makers at all levels and highlight the importance of managing corrosion. By implementing industry best practices, soci- ety can safeguard the environment and reduce the cost of corrosion and its impact on every country's population and economy. Safeguarding the environment will con- tinue to be one of the primary focuses of NACE and the TCC through its members' various activities, such as industry stan- dards development, to enable advances in corrosion management, reduce the release of contaminants into the environment, and improve the world economy and the lives of people around the world.
