TAPPI and PIMA Team up for 2004 Student Summit

December 9, 2003—The Technical Association of the Pulp and Paper Industry [TAPPI] and the Paper Industry Management Association [PIMA] are teaming up to present the 2004 Student Summit.

The 2004 TAPPI PIMA Student Summit will be held in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, January 17th to 19th. The Summit is an excellent opportunity for undergraduate students to learn both about opportunities after graduation as well as the current state of the paper industry and some of its key issues and opportunities. The purpose of the Student Summit is to provide students interested in pulp, paper, and allied industries direct interaction with industry leaders and to provide valuable information on employment opportunities within the industry.

The host for this year’s Student Summit is Georgia-Pacific’s Port Hudson Mill. One of the highlights of the event will be a mill tour and in-depth discussion of the mill’s operations. The program will also include sessions on the State of the Industry and Technical Innovation. Dr. Gary Peter from the University of Florida will discuss the promise of Biotechnology and how it will impact innovation in the paper industry. Other sessions will provide insights into Agenda 2020, the forest products industry’s strategic plan for the future. Agenda 2020 is a plan for the success of the Forest Products industry through a collaborative partnership between industry, government, and academia.
