AICC, The Independent Packaging Association, after receiving several inquiries from members around the U.S. in response to the most recent developments in the coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic, hosted its first weekly videoconference on Friday, March 20. Nearly 400 companies participated. Several members shared the measures they are taking to keep their employees safe, their customers informed, and their operations continuing. Most of the hour-long forum was filled with peer to peer questions and answers.
A recording of the videoconference and a copy of the typed “chat” that accompanied it are available at www.AICCbox.org/COVID
AICC will hold a national audio and video conference call for the next three weeks every Friday at 2 p.m. ET. Dial-in information will be posted at www.AICCbox.org/COVID the Tuesday before the videoconference.
