ATLANTA, GEORGIA, April 17 - Due to recent international developments and upon request from some participants, the continuing education course Management Development for Enhanced Performance initially scheduled for March 24-28 was postponed to June 2-6, so there is still time to register for this innovative and cost effective continuing education program.

Taught by faculty of Georgia Institute of Technology and experienced practitioners from the pulp and paper and supplier industries, using a variety of teaching methods including lectures, class discussions, case studies, and individual /group interactive exercises.
