COATINGSPRO MAY 2016 31 an expression of gratitude to the industry that CMT owes so much to. We invite the recipient town's mayor and town council to make certain that they recognize the efforts of the water operators and appreciate where their community's water comes from. Since our receptions are often the first time these elected officials have visited their water infrastruc- ture, having these celebrations also provide a level of education. A Vision for the Future It feels good to give back to the commu- nity and help others. However, giving back is more than just an exercise in doing good. It deepens a contractor's connection with its industry, employ- ees, and community. As CMT Gives Back enters its fourth year, the program will break new ground as we plan to complete our frst wastewater infrastructure give back project. In addition, we are seeking other non-coatings contractors and engineers to partner with us on even bigger infrastructure rehabilita- tion project donations. We aspire to complete an "Extreme Makeover, Water Infrastructure Edition" project that completely transforms a community's water infrastructure. CMT Gives Back is one small efort to recognize the unsung heroes of North Carolina's rural water systems. We hope that this initiative grows and draws others into the vital mission of revitalizing America's water infrastructure. Is there something that you can do in your area? Coatings are more than surface prep and application. I challenge you to fnd your company's blueprint for giving back.
