UW-Stout Scholarship Update
The IoPP - Wisconsin chapter has been providing scholarship opportunities to UW-Stout since 1998 and the tradition continues throughout the current pandemic! Thank you for your continued support at the annual golf outing fundraiser and please consider joining us this fall as we continue striving toward our next scholarship goal which is to create an endowment fund. More information can be found on our event page for the golf outing with updates as we get closer to the event in the fall.
Thank you to everybody who was involved in helping continue the Wisconsin IoPP Packaging Scholarship at UW-Stout!
Fox Valley & Wisconsin Chapters announce Merger
Recently, the leaders from the Fox Valley and Wisconsin IoPP Chapters met with our Regional IoPP Vice President and two IoPP National officers to discuss the future of the two chapters. The focus of the discussion was around:
Less involvement and participation in chapter leadership positions which has resulted in poor event planning and reduced participation at related chapter events.
The need for having two IoPP chapters in the state of Wisconsin.
In an effort to revitalize the chapters and form a unified membership roster, the chapter leaders are merging into one chapter. The combined group would use the Wisconsin IoPP Chapter name which accurately describes the geographical location of the chapter.
Merging the chapters will provide wide-ranging resources to support a unified chapter and permit the expansion of our ability to provide more frequent and purposeful chapter events. The IoPP National officers support this effort and will help facilitate the change as we move forward with the merge.
The leaders have targeted January 2021 as the anticipated date to complete the merge. This will allow both chapters adequate time to complete the 2020 calendar year events and conclude financial matters.
We encourage the members, supporters and affiliates of both chapters to provide feedback and/or suggestions related to the merge.
Please feel free to reach out directly to either of us, or any of the chapter officers, with your comments.
