The Chicago TAPPI Local Section has announced its annual Board Meeting and first-ever Corrugated Boot Camp on November 7, 2024 at the Oak Brook Marriott in Oak Brook, Illinois.
The Boot Camp is four, 45-minute workshops designed for individuals that are new to the corrugated industry, including new machine operators and printers with minimal experience, as well as individuals who need a refresher on some of today’s equipment. Each session will be repeated four times, allowing attendees to rotate through the sessions and interact with the presenters.
The workshops will take place from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. directly following the Chicago TAPPI annual Board Meeting (10:00 a.m. to noon). Each of the four workshops (Corrugating Rolls/Splicers, Starch and Bonding/Print Plates and Ink Control/Cutting Dies and Anvil Care) focuses on a specific part of production. Visit tappi.org/chicagotappi for topics covered in each session.
A tabletop exhibit and reception is also planned from 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., followed by dinner and a “Troubleshooting Session and Q&A” presentation with the workshop hosts from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
Registration is $25 to attend the Boot Camp and an additional $75 to attend the dinner and troubleshooting session. Those who attend both the workshops and evening program will be entered to win the TVs used during the workshop presentations.
Exhibitor registration is $150. Tabletop exhibits and sponsorship opportunities are also available through the registration portal.
