PAPTAC continues to deliver timely and topic-focused webinars as a learning forum through its technical communities

PAPTAC's ever-popular series of webinars relating to topics ranging from papermaking technology, energy, environment, management, pulping, etc. continue to enhance our members' professional development, as well as engage them in their peer communities, all with easy access from one's office or the mill's training room.

This compelling mix of training topics permitted members to deepen their knowledge and strengthen their capabilities and expertise as well as measure and track impacts the knowledge gained had on their particular business model.

We are pleased with the progression of this webinars and their level of attendance from mills. PAPTAC's Executive Council would like to see a yearly calendar being put out so that mill can plan their participation in advance as per their areas of interest.

The webinars are also helping us build a digital library that will help us deliver, in the near future, a more readily accessible, secure, continued high quality training experience that's available when and how it's most convenient for our members.
Our vision and goals reflect our long-term focus to our core mission of improving the technical and professional capabilities of our members worldwide, creating value, and to the advancement of the pulp and paper industry.

Our webinars are a membership benefit for as little as $175/year in annual dues or can be purchased for as $50.00/person/webinar for non-members.
