A Message from the President
Hello IoPP members and packaging professionals. Our 2017-2018 event year is upon us and I wanted to reach out to everyone regarding our plans for the year. Our first event this year will be a tour of Bentley World Packaging. This tour of one of the premier export packaging contractors in the area will be a great way to kick-off the year. Please see the meeting notice that came with this mailing. You don’t want to miss it.
For this event year we’re going to try something a little different. Rather than having a formal sit down dinner after our events we’re going to keep it more informal with networking /social gatherings along with appetizers. This will allow you to move around and talk to a variety of attendees at the event as well as keeping the cost down. I hope everyone takes advantage of the change.
As I mentioned in a previous mailing, we are always looking for companies or organizations to allow us to tour their facilities or provide a presentation that would benefit not only our group but yours as well. Please feel free to contact me or any of the officers listed on the meeting notice to discuss a possible event.
We do have an event scheduled for early 2018. We will be conducting the ever popular Quiz Night. This is a fun event and a great opportunity to discover how much you and your fellow packaging professional know about the world of packaging. Be sure you make it to this event.
Lastly I want to thank all those who supported our events last year. We had several great tours including another joint tour with the Chicago chapter. We hope to continue this tradition in 2018. That being said, I look forward to seeing many of you at this year’s events.
Gary Konop - President, Wisconsin Chapter IoPP
