President's Message

headshot of president of PPC Tony Swedersky Members,

I am hopeful that 2023 is off to a great start in both your personal and professional lives.

Our 2023 Spring Meeting in Savannah from March 5-7th is quickly approaching, and there is an amazing schedule lined up for this meeting.

This Spring Meeting’s Keynote Speaker is Jim “The Rookie” Morris. Morris is the author of two books, with his most recent release entitled Dream Makers. Jim’s journey is a testimony to the power of dreams and their ability to inspire and transform human life. He will be discussing the transformative power of surrounding yourself with the best, most accomplished people possible, inspiring us to overcome life’s obstacles and achieve our dreams. His career in baseball inspired the movie “The Rookie” starring Dennis Quaid.

The TEC has lined up educational and informative technical sessions. You will want to make sure that you attend. The topics for this spring’s sessions are very relevant to the current manufacturing world that we are all living in today. I am sure everyone will all be able to gain some solid take aways that can be applied or shared within your companies.

PPC College is also available at this meeting and will be getting down to the “Packaging Nitty Gritty.” There are three topics on the schedule that will be very educational and informative. If you haven’t signed up for the PPC College make sure to register before the meeting, to get the best, industry specific educational content possible.

Thanks to the Technical Education Committee, the Long Range Planning Committee, and the Board of Directors for all of your hard work, ensuring that we continue to provide top notch leadership, technical education, networking opportunities and resources for our industry.

We look forward to seeing you at the PPC Spring Meeting!

Best regards,
Tony Swedersky
PPC President
