A note from Martin Downey

Hello to all,

For those of you who may not know me my name is Martin Downey and I’ve been an IoPP member since 1995. I’ve been active on both the Ontario Chapter board as well as the National Board of Directors for the organization. As many of you are aware the chapter has been dormant for about 4 years but it’s charter is in tact and we remain an accredited chapter. The Ontario Chapter was started back in the mid 1980’s by the late Walter Soroka, a packaging powerhouse and guru unto himself and remains the only chapter operating in Canada.

Recently there has been some new life injected into the IoPP at the national level in the U.S. with the advent of, among other things, Pack-Chat is an ideas exchange platform and forum for packaging professionals to discuss many and varied things. As a member if you are not using this regularly you should consider including it in your daily news & info feed. As the world turns today on all things electronic the addition of this new service for IoPP members is in no way meant to deplete the interest in holding face to face meetings and events from time to time.

And to that end comes the reason for this message today.  We need interested folks (non-members and former members welcome) to join me on November 26th at 6:30 p.m. in order to brain storm together on how we can get this chapter up and running strong once again.

We’ll meet in a very informal manner and will attempt to form an interim board of directors and a potential list of things to come. Your input will be valued and appreciated. Please plan on joining us.
