Hello, PPC members! The Fall Meeting is almost upon us. I hope you all are excited to come and be a part of a great opportunity to learn, network, and enjoy your time in awesome Salt Lake City, Utah. Our Keynote Speaker, Joe Theismann, is very eager to share his message with the Petroleum Packaging Council. From speaking with Joe over the phone, you can just tell he is full of energy and continues to meet life head on, even when obstacles come across his path. His message to us will be one you do not want to miss.

As usual, we have a great slate of technical presentations planned for Monday and Tuesday. Please take the time to review the PPC website to familiarize yourself with the presenters and what topics each will be covering.

Two other events that we have scheduled during the Fall Meeting is Speed Networking and PPC College. Speed Networking continues to be a great opportunity to bring the Regular and Associate members together in a format that allows each to share their “elevator message” of what capabilities they have to enhance the petroleum packaging industry as a supplier or manufacturer. PPC College is training that you do not want to miss. Sign up and take advantage of the opportunity to be instructed by industry experts in their chosen fields.

Finally, I wanted to mention to everyone that now is the time to download the App for the PPC Fall Meeting 2019. This is a great tool to be used, not only at the event, but in preparing before the event. Please take the time now and not wait till the last minute.

There has been much work that has gone on behind the scenes to make YOUR meeting another big hit. It will be one meeting you will never forget! See you all in beautiful Salt Lake City!

From Your PPC President
Darren Booth
