Members of TAPPIs leadership community will gather March 26-27 in Jacksonville, Florida, for a meeting that organizers hope will shape the future of the association.

The program is being offered free to TAPPI members involved in leadership roles such as Local Section officers, Committee Chairs, or Student Chapter officers or to any TAPPI member who hopes to contribute in a leadership role. The 2008 TAPPI Leadership Summit will be held at the Hyatt Regency Jacksonville. The Leadership Summit has been scheduled concurrently with a brief Annual Business Meeting and the invitation-only 2008 TAPPI Fellows Luncheon.


The Summit program is being offered at no cost for participants, says organizers. However, all attendees must register for this event. Participants are responsible for their own travel and hotel fees; contact the hotel at +1-904-588-1234 for reservations.

TAPPI has designed a program focused on helping attendees build leadership skills and achieve their goals in any volunteer leadership position. It includes a program of expert lecture, participatory workshops, and small group discussion.

TAPPI Members are also invited to attend the Annual Business Meeting, which will be held on March 27 immediately following the Leadership Summit, at the same venue. This brief meeting will be presented in a Town Hall format and will provide a summary overview of the associations activities during 2007. No awards will be presented at this meeting.

Also being held on March 27, the 2008 TAPPI Fellows Luncheon is an invitation-only annual event exclusively for those who hold the title of TAPPI Fellow. TAPPI Fellow is an honorary designation held by fewer than thre percent of the Associations members, and acknowledges special service to the industry or to TAPPI.
