Attendance Support Materials
We understand it can be challenging to ask for approval to attend TAPPI training events, so we've created an Attendance Support Materials below to assist you with the approval process and in making a strong case for the investment.
We encourage you to review the materials below and let these help you communicate the value of what attending TAPPI Academy training can provide when approaching your manager for approval.
Prepare your Justification.
It's important for you to communicate that attending a TAPPI training event is a strategic investment in your training and development, and a cost-effective way to help you do your job better. You'll meet others who experience the same day-to-day challenges, meet face to face with technical experts and gain an advantage in the industry from the influx of new ideas, innovations and solutions.
Before the Event
Communicate the value of your attendance.
After the Event
Summarize your experience and learning outcomes.
Your preparation will help you earn the greatest benefit from TAPPI training!
In many cases, the work you put in beforehand can also help you determine what information that you want or need to learn from the experts who will assemble to lead this instruction. The interaction with your manager or supervisor can be a productive process to go over some of the challenges that your organization would like to tackle.
