Get Involved in the Division

Welcome to our Tissue Division page. The division is made up of hundreds of technical professionals who work in the manufacture and converting of tissue products around the world and the work of its volunteers. New members are always welcome.  

Division Chair: William Oliver, Clearwater Paper
Division Co-Chair: John M. Muchukot, Chemstone

The Tissue Division's newest event is Tissue 2017, a conference and trade fair jointly organized by TAPPI and RISI to provide the highest quality business insight and technical information available. 

The Technical Committees of the Tissue Division work together throughout the year to solve problems, develop technical papers, plan conference sessions, and more. 

Each year, the Tissue Division is proud to provide several scholarships and awards.

We are proud to provide TAPPI Connect as a centralized, online resource for our members, consultants and volunteers to network, share knowledge, problem solve and collaborate.
