The NACE International Institute was formed in 2012 as an organization focused on certification activities and further advancement of the corrosion profession. It  supports growth and quality of certification for the corrosion control field, seeks to improve the business conditions of the industry, and advance knowledge through certification programs that promote public safety, protect the environment and reduce the economic impact of corrosion.

"

The NACE International Institute will initially focus on meeting industry needs for workforce certification programs, pursuing global consistency of certification requirements, raising industry and public awareness of the purpose and benefits of certification programs, and supporting employment of certified corrosion control professionals. Over time, the Institute will continue to draw more activities into its operations to serve stakeholders based on changing industry needs.


Seelinger will be a non-voting, ex-officio member of the Institute’s Board of Directors, responsible for providing strategic direction and leadership to the Institute’s day-to-day operations, and will maintain oversight of NACE International’'s technical activities, membership, public relations and public affairs activities.
