Hello all from CIC IoPP
We are very happy to announce a tour at Capital Adhesives in Mooresville, Indiana on Monday, June 10, 2013 starting at 5:30 P.M. Dinner to follow afterward. We wish to thank Caesar Watkins and Kerry Crossland for their efforts to set up this informative tour. Capital is a leading manufacturer of adhesives for the packaging, bookbinding, printing, perfect binding, product assembly, labeling, laminating, mailing services, office products, rigid box and packaging industries. Please plan now to see one of the top packaging adhesive companies in the nation.
The board has been working on other future events. Our annual golf outing will be Friday September 13, 2013. Caesar Watkins has a good time planned for all even if it is on Friday the 13th. The golf outing raises money for scholarships for the students of the packaging program at Indiana State.
Then in October, we will be visiting Indiana State’s Packaging Technology program to meet the students and tour the department.
We still have some openings for officers and chairs in the Central Indiana Chapter. If interested, call me directly or email. We have fun and would like for more packaging professionals to join us.
We would like to express our deepest sympathies to Caesar Watkins on the recent passing of his sister. Caesar is one of the pillars of our chapter and our thoughts were with him during this difficult time.
We look forward to see many of you at Capital Adhesives on June 10, 2013.

Central Indiana Chapter Institute of Packaging Professionals
If you have been on one our tours or went to the golf outing, you know what a good time we have.
Want to help in making the fun? Then you may want to consider how you can get more involved.
We have a few openings that need to be filled. Fun opportunities and friendship-building experiences await you,
Here is a list of CIC’s outstanding offices committees and what is involved with each:
Treasurer; Our last treasurer did such a good job she got a new job opportunity in a warmer climate. Seriously though, being responsible for the money of a group can only help your resume. We don’t write many checks and is a relatively easy way to be involved. Let is talk to you about it.
Program; Help organize and plan meetings and tours. This is the fun social activity that is the heart of our networking activities. Help is always needed.
Fundraising; CIC’s main fundraiser is the golf outing. What a blast we had at the last one! Great fun outside and helps raise money for scholarships for our students at Indiana State.
Membership; Attracting and recruiting members is also another way to expand your network connections. Folks you associate with in your job usually folks you would like to associate with outside of work.
Education / Certification; If learning more about packaging and/or helping others learn is more to your interest, then this could be your niche. Helping fellow members obtain their Certifications as Packaging Technicians or Packaging Professionals is rewarding and a great service.
Chapter of the Year; Basically a recordkeeping and reporting function. Keep track of our goings on and report to national once a year. Easy and could bring recognition to CIC just for telling our story of what we do.
Call myself or any other officer if you have any questions or, wish to get started.
