IAPD Plastics PAC Board Meeting

The Leadership Conference is a great time to get to know other people in the industry on a personal level. Even though your competitors might be sitting at the same table, everyone is on the same playing field at the Leadership Conference. It is a great opportunity to learn more about IAPD, what IAPD stands for and the leadership that drives the association.
