ARLINGTON, Va.--The PMMI membership has elected six new members to the PMMI Board of Directors. The vote took place during PMMI’s Annual Meeting, held recently in Washington, D.C. In addition, the board of directors elected its executive committee for the coming year. Nominating Committee Chairman Bob Risley, corporate development executive at Intralox, LLC, noted that PMMI’s bylaws require that the board reflects the composition of the PMMI membership, in terms of geography and company size.
“Although not prescribed in our bylaws, we also look for members who have already demonstrated a commitment to PMMI; that would mean active members, ones who have a proven record of stepping up to lead,” Risley added. Currently, PMMI has more than 550 member companies.
The following packaging industry leaders will start their four-year terms January 1, 2009:
