TAPPI Young Professionals Division

The TAPPI Young Professional (YP) Division is where undergraduate and graduate students, recent graduates, and early career professionals come together to develop their leadership and technical skills, and to build relationships with peers and experienced industry professionals from across the pulp, paper, packaging, tissue, and related industries.

We are the gateway to all that TAPPI has to offer as an industry association and a launchpad for young professionals across the industry.

If you are an early career professional in the professional in the paper, pulp, and packaging industry, we encourage you to check out the replay of our Orientation event below to hear from keynote speakers in our industry on the topic of how to build a career amid challenging times, and to get an idea of what the TAPPI YP Division can offer you as a member.
