Whereas the National Association of Chemical Distributors (NACD) is celebrating its 50th anniversary and in recognition of the association's successful commitment to placing the highest priority on the health, safety, and security of its members, their employees, communities, and the environment, they are deserving of special public commendation;

Whereas NACD has grown to nearly 400-member companies composed of businesses, small and large, which represents more than 85 percent of the chemical distribution capacity in the Nation and 90 percent of the industry's gross revenue;
Whereas NACD serves as the leading voice of the chemical distribution industry and works to promote informed legislation and policies for the betterment of industry and innovation; and
