Following its restructuring in 2008, the focus in 2009 for the Pulp and Paper Technical Association of Canada ( PAPTAC) was on maintaining core activities. Chairman Andr Bernier said at the group’s annual general meeting that national membership has declined to 2420 members, due to mill closures and the industry slowdown.

Some highlights of association activities in 2009 are the addition of supplier members on the executive council, monthly conference calls of the executive committee, a revised publication process with Pulp & Paper Canada, the paper machine optimization seminar, and webinars.

Bernier says the association’s focus going forward will be quality networking opportunities and the exchange of technical information to contribute to professional development. He expects the group’s use of web-based technologies will continue to rise.

PAPTAC members voted to downsize the minimum number of council members required to form an executive council, from 9 to 7. Also, the bylaws have been changed to permit a full audit of PAPTAC’s finances every three years, with a review of the financial results being carried out in other years.
