Division Leadership Council

The TAPPI Young Professionals Division is led by a team of volunteers, representing many different companies across TAPPI’s industries. Each volunteer brings their own skillset, ideas, and passion to the division, helping to shape its future. The YP Division also has a liaison for each of the divisions of TAPPI. Each Division Liason serves as the connector between TAPPI’s Young Professionals Division and one of TAPPI’s technical divisions, based on their individual career goals.
