IPMA Online In-plant 'Conference' Starts Monday
On Monday morning, the In-plant Printing and Mailing Association (IPMA) will kick off a week-long educational webinar series, on the same dates its annual conference was to have taken place in Bonita Springs, Fla. This free offering consists of sessions twice per day at 11:00 a.m. EST/8:00 a.m. PST and 3:00 p.m. EST/12:00 p.m. PST. Sessions are open to anyone in the in-plant industry, including suppliers.
“Since we can’t be together this year in Florida, IPMA is turning our annual conference in to a virtual event. Join me, along with other IPMA members, for our webinar series,” says Sherri Isbell, president of IPMA’s board of directors.
The series explores print, mailing, and general in-plant topics focused on realigning and bringing more business into in-plants in the current pandemic-fueled environment.
Dr. Trish Holliday, founding partner of Holliday│Kenning Inc., will keynote the series, presenting two sessions: “Business Not as Usual: The Formula for Future Success" and “You Do Not Have to Grin and Bear It: Learning Resiliency Best Practices.”
One highlight will be a panel discussion on June 9 at 3:00 p.m. EST called “COVID-19 and In-house Print: the Path To Recovery.” Moderated by Joe Morgan, founder of siY, it will feature six in-plant managers from Bloomberg, Deer Valley Unified School District, Sacramento State, Sanford Health, the World Bank Group, and the State of Tennessee.
Other sessions will cover mailpiece design, smart lockers, and insourcing. The IPMA 2021 conference location will be announced in the opening address on June 8. The four-day event will culminate on June 11 with an executive briefing by consultant Greg Cholmondeley on IPMA’s 2020 whitepaper “Strategic Planning for In-plants.”
