IPG to Speak at Next Week's CUPMAC Conference in Ottawa
For the past 50 years, higher-ed in-plant managers in Canada have been meeting annually to share advice and expand their education. Next week, the College and University Print Management Association of Canada (CUPMAC) will meet once again, and IPG Editor Bob Neubauer will be on hand.
Taking place in Ottawa, Canada's capital, CUPMAC 2017 will include sessions and roundtables on outsourcing, wide-format printing, MFD fleets, additional revenue streams, environmental sustainability and more. The 50th annual CUPMAC conference is expected to draw two dozen managers from universities as far away as Victoria, British Columbia.
The big draw is sure to be keynote speaker Frank Romano, professor emeritus at the Rochester Institute of Technology, who will talk about printing's past, present and future in his own unique, humorous way. Neubauer will offer his own observations on changes in the in-plant industry in a session on Monday afternoon. (Fun fact: Romano and Neubauer were last on the docket together at CUPMAC 2006 in St. Johns, Newfoundland.)
Also on the agenda, Ray Konecsni of the University of Regina will talk about his school's Print Optimizaiton Program; Lisa Matthews, of Dalhousie University, will expand upon printing partnerships with hospitals; and John Wesseling, with the University of Cincinnati, will offer an update on accomplishments at his in-plant. Plus the group will visit the in-plants at Algonquin College and Carleton University. The event will wrap up with the CUPMAC awards dinner on Wednesday evening.
