ICPF Annual Student Dialogue Dinner

By AICC Staff

March 23, 2017

On February 22, the evening before ICPF’s Teleconference on the Business of Corrugated Packaging & Displays and the Career Opportunities, 20 select students from Bowling Green State University, Clemson University, Michigan State University, and Virginia Tech joined Teleconference speakers and local industry executives in East Lansing, Mich., for dinner to learn more about corrugated packaging and display industry careers. Executives with packaging facilities in the region and industry speakers for the Teleconference (where 18 campuses and almost 500 students participated) provided these students, who have indicated a preference for a career in corrugated, firsthand knowledge of the industry.

The students from Bowling Green State University, Clemson University, and Virginia Tech were provided ICPF travel grants for travel to East Lansing as ICPF’s special dinner and Teleconference guests. The visiting students joined the MSU student audience in the public television broadcast auditorium the next day to view ICPF’s Teleconference, gaining additional knowledge on the corrugated industry as well as a unique perspective on the program through observing their fellow students’ participation from their remote campuses by video broadcast. Many students who have participated in the annual dialogue dinner program in past years have accepted positions in the corrugated industry upon graduation.

For more information on the students and executives who participated this year, visit The résumés of these students, as well as those of other qualified upcoming graduates, additionally can be accessed on ICPF’s Career Portal by ICPF corporate partners and potential partners that post student internships or full-time entry-level openings there this quarter.
