FLEXO Magazine : February 2008
FTA TODAY should expect to take home and how to get the most out of their Forum experience? Gilbert: First of all, it's going to be fun. With the 50th anni- versary there is going to be a lot of energy around the event. It's a time where those who have been coming for 50 years or who are attending for the first time can ask what the next 50 years are going to look like, where are the opportunities for improvement, and where are the opportunities to expand the things that are working well. Mazur: Sustainability is so new, that many people don't know what it means for their business? It's all very interesting, but just hearing about saving polar bears doesn't help them. Of course, all of the other sessions can help address competitiveness, standard- ization, and turning these things to their advantage. After the interview, Gilbert expressed his thoughts on chairing this year's Forum. "It's been fun," he stated. "I appreciate the opportunity to do this, especially for the 50th anniversary. I've benefited from last year's Forum Chair Dave Nunez, as well as Mark Mazur and the rest of the Forum Committee. I was glad to be a part of it and look for- ward to the event."
