TAPPI recently announced the launch of its new online forum, TAPPI Connect. The platform reportedly provides an online resource for members, non-members and volunteers to collaborate, share knowledge, and expand their personal and professional networks.

“We’re excited to offer TAPPI Connect as a means of networking, problem-solving and knowledge sharing,” said Larry N. Montague, president and CEO. “TAPPI continually strives to deliver the most convenient, innovative methods of communicating for professionals in the pulp, paper, packaging and related forest products industries and this is another step forward.”

Currently, there are more than 60 committee areas available to students, young professionals, and industry experts. Users can participate in real-time communication, as well as create blogs, ask and answer questions, recruit volunteers, and enhance their membership experience. Additionally, it holds content for member and committee profiles, calendars, and file sharing for items such as agendas, meeting minutes, and manuscripts.
