The FPSA's Young Professionals Group (YPG) will host informal roundtable sessions for students and young professionals who will be attending the 2017 PROCESS EXPO, September 19-22, at the McCormick Place Convention Center in Chicago, Illinois. 

The show floor will also feature an area dedicated to these future industry leaders called the Quad.

"We've created the YPG Career Roundtable session on Friday, September 22nd from 9:30 - 10:30am as an opportunity for students and young professionals to network, find mentors and hear more about the variety of career paths that are available in the food processing and packaging industry," said the Chairperson of the YPG, Dr. Kohl Schrader, Technical Applications Manager, Poly-clip System. "Young executives in sales, marketing, applications and engineering will share their experiences on how they launched their career after college, avenues for continuing education and networking, as well as some of the challenges that they have faced over the last ten years.  I have no doubt that attendees will expand their professional networks and industry knowledge which will be invaluable as they begin their careers in the food industry."  For young industry executives, who are FPSA members and want to get involved as a mentor, contact Dolores Alonso at This email address is being protected from spambots.

The Quad will also feature student mixers and networking opportunities.
