President & CEO
The upcoming Tissue World New Orleans conference will take place March 14-17, 2016 at the New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center.
In 2014, AF&PA established a Tissue Sector to fully represent the interests of our growing membership base of tissue manufacturers and enhance our industry representation. Tissue is the fastest growing forest product in the world today, representing an area of growth for the industry.
And in a competitive environment, growth is not without challenges. Burdensome regulations and legislation have the power to impose millions of dollars of costly requirements on tissue manufacturers and converters.
I am pleased to be speaking about AF&PA’s efforts to support tissue manufacturers and Tissue World New Orleans. My session entitled "Public Policy Trends Affecting the Tissue Industry" will address the current state and federal public policy trends affecting tissue producers and the industry’s sustainability initiatives, and how you can stay one step ahead of the changes.
AF&PA members receive a 10 percent discount on the registration fee for Tissue World New Orleans. For more details, you can check out the conference agenda here.
I hope to see you in The Big Easy!
Donna Harman will speak at the Tissue World New Orleans Senior Management Seminar on March 15.
