2012 IAPD Convention Interest Group Meetings
All Canadians are welcome to attend this common interest group meeting. Topics of interest to those in the Candian plastics industry will be discussed.
The IAPD Future Leaders focus is on two objectives. The first objective is a platform for mentoring those members who want to grow their knowledge within the plastics industry. The mentor program will include committed members from IAPD committees and CIG’s to serve as mentors while engaging future leader members as mentees.
The second objective is to serve as a central point for networking and professional development provided via IAPD resources and opportunities. The future leaders are encouraged to get involved on IAPD committees and CIG’s as well as attend the IAPD Annual Convention & Expo and regional event opportunities hosted by IAPD.
Join us for an informational session including additional details about the IAPD Future Leaders and how you can get more involved within IAPD.
