In Memoriam: Hartl Jones

ISBT extends its condolences to the friends and family of Hartl Richard Jones, who passed away on November 6, 2022, at the age of 93. 

Hartl Jones was an active and contributing member of SSDT (Society of Soft Drink Technologists - now ISBT) during his career at Mojonnier, FMC, and Meyer-Mojonnier. He served on the SSDT Board of Directors for three terms. In his last term (1984 to 1992) he was elected to leadership positions, advancing to 2nd VP (1987), 1st VP (1988), and Society President (1989). 

Hartl was known for his quick wit, gentle humor, articulate presentation skills, and beverage industry knowledge. He will be missed by all who knew him.
Membership Renewal Reminder

As you know, ISBT has simplified the membership renewal process by moving to a common, annual membership structure. Throughout 2022, we have transitioned all members to a common renewal date of December 31.
If your membership expires on December 31, 2022, be sure to renew now so you don’t miss important information on BevTech, and exhibitor and sponsorship opportunities at the event. You can renew your membership at your convenience by going to the Members Only Dashboard. You can also renew your membership while registering for BevTech once meeting registration opens later this month.

Committee Profile
Beverage Gases Technical Committee

The mission of the Beverage Gases Technical Committee is to provide a forum for the free flow of information related to beverage gases and their uses; a place where questions, ideas, and problems related to beverage gases and their utilization can be openly presented without apprehension, and with the expectation of receiving a satisfactory discussion, answer, or solution. Beverage gases manufacturers, beverage producers, and other industry members can share mutually beneficial technologies, (i.e., technical advantages, breakthroughs, concerns, etc.), that will enhance the beverage industry, without disparaging direct and indirect competitors or others in the beverage gases and beverage industry.
