Casey Shaw, Director of Customer Service at Batavia Container and AICC Midwest Region Director, has announced that the AICC Midwest Golf outing on Monday, July 19, 2021, was a tremendous success after being canceled last year due to the pandemic. Members from across the entire Midwest and as far as California and the East Coast, met at the St. Charles Country Club in St. Charles, Illinois for a fun day of golf and networking.
A total of 108 converters and suppliers played golf and a total of 128 attended the dinner. A special thank you goes out to Clay Shaw of Batavia Container, who once again hosted the event. The AICC Midwest Region Board Members would like to extend a thank you to everyone that sponsored the event, without whom the event would not have been possible.
