The American Ceramic Society (ACerS) recently announced the appointment of Marcus J. Fish to the position of development director for the newly created CeramicMarcus Fish 300 and Glass Industry Foundation (CGIF). The CGIF mission is to ensure that the global ceramic and glass industry is able to attract and train the highest quality talent available. It also addresses two diverging trends impacting the ceramic and glass industry, according to David Green, president of the society. 
“Universities have been consolidating ceramic engineering degree programs into materials science and engineering programs over the past several decades,” said Green. “Meanwhile, applications for engineered ceramic and glass materials in commercial products continue to expand. The CGIF addresses industry’s need for materials scientists with the specialized knowledge to produce and engineer reliable ceramics and glasses.”
