Louisiana State Alliance:
Louisiana Process Technology Alliance (LAPTEC)
Louisiana has been a trend setter in PTEC over the last three years. Their success in recruitment, program quality, and hiring of PTEC graduates has been attributed to their true commitment to PARTNERSHIPS. The Louisiana State PTEC Board, which is legislatively mandated, meets once a month and is made up of education, industry, government, and non-profits that support their mission. The board is industry driven and is currently being chaired by Guy Tenini, Plant Manager, Dupont and co-chaired by Steve Rathweg, Site Manager, Shell Chemical - Geismar. Although this board was initiated by the Louisiana Chemical Association (LCA), other industries such as oil and gas and E&P are also actively involved on the board.
