RPA: A Year in Review
By Molly Alton Mullins
Regardless of your industry specialty, it’s safe to say that 2020 has been a year unlike any other. Beginning in mid-March, every member of the Retail Packaging Association had to pivot in mid air and adjust to selling and servicing your customers in the midst of a nationwide lockdown and worldwide pandemic. While the year hasn’t been easy, RPA members have adapted, coming out of 2020 ready to begin a new chapter. And the association has been here every step of the way and is looking forward to brighter skies for everyone ahead.
DATES FOR THE CONFERENCE HAVE CHANGED!
