Air Force Engineering Community,


Registrations for the Non-Chrome Technical Interchange Meeting have begun! Please encourage your staff to register and make hotel reservations for this important event.


This event offers numerous presentations on the performance of chrome-free coating systems used in the Air Force and DoD, to include Government and commercial aircraft corporations.  Presentations will cover test and evaluation results of lab, outdoor exposure and field service assessments and address ongoing efforts. Most importantly, the TIM will help prepare the Air Force to hold an Airworthiness risk assessment in accordance with Air Worthiness Bulletin 1015.  Information presented should stimulate discussion to address concerns and help to understand implementation risks.


We have secured a block of rooms at the HOTEL VALENCIA RIVERWALK at the current government per diem rate.   When making reservations please be sure to use reservation code 1709DODTRI for the "DoD Tri-Service Chrome Free Technical Meeting."  The hotel is located at 150 East Houston St, San Antonio, TX 78205.  The telephone is (210) 227-9700.  The last day to make hotel reservations is 21 Aug 17.  After that date, any uncommitted rooms will be released. For contractors, attendance at this event is limited only to industry on a current contract with DoD.


We would like to strongly encourage the attendance of Chief Engineers, Corrosion Prevention and Control Engineers/Corrosion Managers and all individuals associated with making technical decisions concerning coating systems on Air Force and DoD assets.


This is going to be a great event!  Our points of contact are Chris Vickers, telephone (937) 656-6713, and Lori Sargeant (937) 255-7725 for questions and/or additional information.
