IAPD Executive Director Susan Avery, CAE, Appointed to Design News Advisory Board

IAPD’s Executive Director Susan E. Avery, CAE, has been appointed to the Advisory Board for Design News.

With a shared commitment to technical education for engineers and designers, Avery’s role on the Advisory Board will be to provide a plastics industry perspective as well as serve as a sounding board for new projects. “My participation on the Design News Advisory Board will provide IAPD an opportunity to integrate content about engineering, see-through, industrial and durable plastics, as well as thermal industrial plastics piping systems, into an established media outlet that has a broad reach into the design engineering community,” says IAPD Executive Director, Susan E. Avery, CAE. “Plastics, and their unique benefits, potential applications and viability as substitute material are vastly under-represented in education and technical content provided to design engineers. This represents an incredible opportunity for IAPD to contribute to the editorial content targeted to our members’ end-use customers.” Avery will collaborate with IAPD members and committees to provide editorial guidance on content about plastics for Design News.

Design News’ objective to align with design engineers worldwide makes it the only engineering resource to provide practical editorial content in print and online with a commitment to delivering that content in a format that is quick and intuitive for busy engineers. First published in 1946, Design News currently boasts a readership circulation of 145,000, an average of 800,000 web page views per month and 175,000 unique web visitors per month. With today's announcement, Avery’s role will allow her to reach out to a greater number of designers and engineers to educate them on the power of plastics. “We’re very excited to have Susan as a member of the Design News Advisory Board,” says Rich Nass, brand director for Design News. “She comes to us with a broad knowledge in a key area for Design News readers/designers, namely plastics, which are an essential element of a large percentage of products.”

Design News is the leading property for the continuing education of design engineers across all disciplines. Through its print publication, award-winning web site, and live events, it touches more people, by far, than any competitive property.
