The Institute of Packaging Professionals has named new members of its board of directors for the 2020-2021:
• Jennifer Benolken, regulatory specialist for packaging engineering at Tyvek medical packaging, part of DuPont Protection Solutions.
• Michael Okoroafor, vice president of global sustainability and packaging innovation for McCormick & Co. Inc.
• William Rice, principal of packaging technology at SC Johnson & Son Inc.
IoPP has made positive changes over the last year, said Jane Chase, executive director of the trade association in Herndon, Va. She welcomed the new board members.
“We are not the same association of just a few years ago,” Chase said. “The industry is changing and to avoid being left behind, packaging professionals need to invest in industry education, as well as recognition and networking opportunities.”
