  • Unveiling of our new Petroleum Packaging Council logo.
  • The Spring Meeting app that helped managing meetings and my calendar so efficient.
  • First time members, being welcomed into our organization.
  • Actively posting on the Petroleum Packaging Council Linkedin site.
  • Seeing/networking with long-time business associates.
  • Announcing the addition of new programs of study to qualify and an additional scholarship for our members’ children.
