Help Your New Recruits Grow Strong: Give the Power of Training

Give the Power of Training

Is your company looking for a great new feature to include in your recruitment package or are you challenged with how to acclimate and train new hires? Look no further than TAPPI Young Professional (YP) memberships for your new employees and young workforce.

TAPPI Young Professional Membership offers not only powerful continuing education opportunities through conferences, courses, webinars, books and periodicals – but also direct access with other young professionals, as well as mentors and content experts. While they may have finished their formal education, successful professionals know that lifelong learning never stops. Be the employer that encourages continued learning.

There are two membership packages available for your YPs. For your new hires – those employees just out of school – TAPPI offers the Bridge Year membership rate of just $35. For those employees 29 years old or younger, the rate is just $119 per individual (a discount of more than 30% off the regular TAPPI member rate). 

Through YP Membership, your company can provide recipients great benefits including:

  • Opportunities to enhance their professional and personal growth by taking advantage of the YP Division's’ wide range of career advancement resources, educational and networking events.
  • Relationship-building tools, enabling collaboration with their peers and industry professionals through a Mentor/Protégé program and TAPPI Connect online community.
  • Volunteer openings that help them build their personal and professional brand and develop the leadership skills necessary to make them a valued member of your team. 
  • Access to free webinars, archived conference proceedings, technical articles, as well as the industry’s largest eLibrary with over 25,000 papers, articles, reports and technical documents – all contributing to their ongoing education.
  • And of course, member discounts on conferences, training, eLearning, TAPPI Press books and Standards and Technical Information Papers (TIPs).

TAPPI YP members also have access to the Young Professionals Division. The YP Division promotes the future of our industry by recognizing the creativity of this young generation of driven and innovative minds as well as encouraging them to become more personally involved in the industry.

If your company is like many others hiring college graduates from various disciplines, TAPPI offers the relevant background and support necessary to help new professionals excel in their careers in the pulp, paper, packaging, tissue, and related forest products industries.
