Greetings from Stay at Home Chicago! I hope everyone is being safe and staying healthy throughout this pandemic period. I know I am anxious to get things to return to “normal,” but it’s still uncertain what normal will be going forward.  We had a busy year planned at CRG but COVID-19 has taken its toll on many of our events. We hope we will see you at some of the virtual events we are planning.  We are still hoping to have a fall technical in-person meeting.  Please see the calendar for the updates.  As always, we welcome any donations to help support our efforts in continuing to educate members of the Rubber Industry. Be safe and I hope to see all of you soon!



Please remember to renew your Chicago Group Membership for 2020!


Many thanks to Ron Coia for his help with the Education Chair. We honored him in March and wish him the best in his retirement! Mark Petras has stepped up to serve as Education chair. Thanks Mark!

The Chicago Board welcomes Anthony Furio, SKF – Secretary 2020 and Anthony Galizia, Holly Frontier – Supplier Director 2020.
