The Packaging Hall of Fame™ recognizes career packaging professionals for their significant contributions to the industry and packaging education. The honor, which PMMI coordinates, has been awarded annually since 1971.
“Nominations can come from any industry professional. Nominees must fit the qualifications, but the honor can be presented posthumously,” says Ben Miyares, vice president, industry relations, PMMI, and a 2008 inductee.
Any industry professional may nominate a candidate. Nominations for the Packaging Hall of Fame class of 2009 are due to Miyares no later than Aug. 3, 2009.
Qualified nominees for the Packaging Hall of Fame should be career packaging professionals – living or deceased – who, in the course of their packaging careers, have personally advanced the science, technology and practice of packaging; expanded packaging knowledge; and been a remarkable volunteer leader in the packaging community.
The 2009 Packaging Hall of Fame inductees will be recognized during a fund-raising awards reception at the Las Vegas Hilton on Monday, October 5, during PACK EXPO 2009.
