Leave a Legacy for Future Generations at PEERS

Facing an aging workforce, the pulp and paper industry needs to focus its attention on drawing more young professionals to its ranks. Mills and other organizations must have a solid plan for the transfer of knowledge before it’s too late. Seasoned professionals can have a huge impact on the industry and leave a legacy for the future by sharing their expertise with the younger generation just starting their paper and packaging careers.

TAPPI’s Pulping, Engineering, Environmental, Recycling and Sustainability (PEERS) Conference, November 1-4 in Atlanta, GA, is an ideal platform for pulp and paper professionals to share a new technology, advancement, process improvement, or research project with the industry. Known as one of the leading technical conferences in the industry, PEERS draws professionals and academics from around the world. Its comprehensive technical program emphasizes new methods and best practices to help mills optimize operations and reach their sustainability goals. The Conference provides mills and other professionals the opportunity to learn from industry experts in a presentation setting, as well as engage in peer-to-peer discussions during panel sessions, committee meetings and roundtables. PEERS also offers multiple networking events and includes an exhibit floor where attendees can speak face-to-face with suppliers about the latest technologies and solutions.
