I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to NJPEC 2017. Your trustees, officers, committee chairs, and committees are already at work preparing to make 2017 a meaningful year for all of us. We have a full year of programming planned, to enrich your professional life, while providing networking opportunities as well. We have a number of initiatives underway to provide you with improved benefits, such as:
We are also working on 7 events this year:
Our first event is rapidly approaching, Packaging Innovations Forum, on March 23, 2017. We have a dynamic speaker lined up to stimulate your “cognitive abilities” which will lead to new idea formulation for next generation products or entirely new ones. Look for upcoming emails for details.
We have a dedicated group of professionals working to bring you “innovative and provoking” programming. We are looking to “open up” our leadership to new members or existing members that want to help out. If you can volunteer to work on one of our events, or want to work on a standing committee (Membership, Website, Sponsorships, Dinners, etc.), please reach out to me @ firstname.lastname@example.org, and I will provide assistance.
I look forward to meeting all of you at this year’s events.
