President's Message

PPC members, Can you believe January is already gone? Life has been a whirlwind lately, but who is complaining. Business continues to be strong in almost all areas of industry. More people are working, and good things come from hard work and the entrepreneurial spirit. In times like this, individuals grow, companies stretch, and communities begin to thrive. The influence of those wanting to make a sincere difference can be felt in all aspects of life whether it is at work or in their own homes. I mention this because I believe “YOUR” upcoming PPC meeting will be an event that will positively impact you for many years. We want you to come and get involved. Our attendance so far has surpassed our expectations so plan to be a part of this opportunity to meet with even more customers, potential customers and colleagues.

I met with the upcoming Keynote Speaker, Kevin Brown. What an incredible individual. You will want to hear him as his message will impact all of us in a way that will positively affect you for many years to come. So, come with an eagerness to learn, network, and improve not only yourself, but the company you work for and the petroleum packaging industry. Your respective companies have invested in you to attend the PPC Spring Meeting, so make it happen while you are there! See you all in beautiful Scottsdale, AZ!

Best Regards,
From Your PPC President
Darren Booth
