"AICC has taken on the leadership position for our industry to educate and train prospective employees, new hires and veterans in this great industry. This is just one of the many missions the AICC fulfills and education is one of my most passionate areas. We can gain all the possessions in the world but one possession that can never be taken from us is knowledge. That’s why knowledge is power. As we bring more and more bright stars into the industry we need to train them and to keep the saw sharpened for existing employees this foundation will prove priceless.
I encourage anyone who believes that knowledge is power and wants to bring forward the minds of our existing and future employees to make a tax-deductible gift to support this goal.
The mind is a terrible thing, let’s not waste it!"
"The Foundation of Packaging Education is necessary to fill the void regarding the ongoing training and education for employees already in the industry and we need ongoing training and education to provide the skill set for our employees to be successful. The focus on workforce development will allow us to continue to elevate, develop, engage and ultimately retain our employees."
