RPTA Operating Board

The technical agenda of the Recycled Paperboard Technical Association is managed by the RPTA Operating Board. Made up of primarily technical directors from member companies, the Operating Board identifies technical projects and studies to be undertaken by the Association and creates the agenda for the yearly Production-Technical Seminar. The Operating Board also oversees the development of the Roundtable/Webinar educational program series that RPTA holds three times per year geared toward mill technical, production, and energy experts.
