Highlights from our Champions Meeting
A PDA Champions meeting was recently held in Atlanta with packaging professionals from our Member and Supplier companies attending. George Strobel kicked off the meeting with general greetings and some facts about PDA. Barb Dammann took the stage next and led the group through the PDA mission and goals.
Amy Packer (Hughes) and Jeff Knapke (Versa Pak) “championed” the session and led the team in strategy sessions and networking sessions. Olivia Pietersen led a talk on social media in packaging and introduced the group to #WeArePDA.
The session also included sharing company core competencies, review of the champion roles, best practices, discussion on current trends and issues as well as general networking.
Approximately 50 people attended the meeting and the feedback has been very positive! The champions will continue to come together to share best practices, improve their own companies, and improve PDA.
