OVER 1000 NEW MEMBERS JOIN PAPTAC

Dear members,

Following the implementation of the Mill Membership Packages in 2011, we are pleased to announce that a total of
1143 new members have now joined PAPTAC.

This new membership format designed to increase and facilitate mill participation in the Association, provides each participating mill the opportunity to register an unlimited number of staff in the Association for one flat fee.
The response from industry has been immediate and very positive, with over 7
8 mills now registered under this new format. From the 1143 new members that have joined, 761 are from mills - and this number is still growing.

We are extremely pleased to see this enthusiastic response from the industry, as the benefits derived from membership in PAPTAC provide access to a strengthened community of individuals who can network and exchange on common challenges, opportunities and objectives.

We wish to thank all our members for their participation in PAPTAC
and we invite you to join today the PAPTAC Technical Community(ies) that correspond to your fields of interest and expertise in order to expand your professional network.

Greg Hay
Executive Director
