December 4, 2017

If you attended AICC’s annual meeting and Pack Expo in September, you may have seen ICPF’s banner displayed at nine university booths during the Expo. Over two days, ICPF visited with faculty and 92 students at their booths, where staff provided information on corrugated packaging and display careers and tutorials on using ICPF resources to apply for student internships and full-time positions upon graduation. The university packaging programs participating with ICPF at the show included Cal Poly, Clemson, Florida, Indiana State, Michigan State, RIT, Rutgers, Wisconsin–Stout, and Virginia Tech. Students additionally participated in a drawing to receive free Fibre Box Handbooks.
