One benefit of being a member of PMMI-The Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies applies not to the companies, but to their employees.

For roughly two decades the PMMI Foundation has offered tuition reimbursement to member company employees seeking to advance their careers through education. The money can be used to refund work training or college courses, with the primary requirement being that the education is used to improve job skills.

“It is something we offer to our member companies and something we offer to help their employees get trained,” said Stephan Girard, director of education and workforce development at PMMI.
