MADISON, WIS. — Wisconsin Plastics Industry Day will be held at Madison's Monona Terrace Convention Center on Sept. 16.
This first-time event will address issues including state implementation of new clean air standards, worker training, career development and the impact of electricity deregulation.
The event is sponsored by the Midwest regional offices of the Society of the Plastics Industry Inc. and SPI/American Plastics Council State Government Affairs. About 100 attendees and 10-20 exhibitors are expected, said a spokeswoman from SPI's Midwest section.
