FLEXO Magazine : Golden Anniversary Commemorative Journal
"Wow! Working with the FFTA has been, and is, a great experience. As Chair of the Phoenix Challenge Foundation, my activities and those ofPCF go hand- in-hand with FTA's. Together, we work with schools, teachers, students and industry to promote the growth in the Flexo in Education programs. I love working with the FFTA." -Bettylyn Krafft, Chairman, Phoenix Challenqe Foundation "FT A has been and continues to be an incredibly important voice for the pro- motion of flexography and the improve- ment of flexographic technology in North America. We are living in a highly competitive global economy, and we must work hard to ensure that flexogra- phy maintains its strong position here and continues to grow in the rest of the world. For that to happen, FTA must continue to keep a broad cross-section of frequently competitive flexographers and suppliers focused on the common goal of enhancing flexography." -Ray Bodwell, Marketinq Manaqer, DuPont Packaqinq Graphics "Flexography has matched, if not surpassed other printing processes in the last decade. I have witnessed this through the FTA Awards Judging process. Membership will enhance its capabilities. FTA will succeed as long as there are those who strive to be Different.1II -Frank Wheeldon, Schawk "The judging experience at FTA helps me gain understanding in areas I normally don't work with. Converters and suppliers working together and sharing thoughts is a excellent networking opportunity. It helps you see what is happening outside of your own four walls. The second thing that has definitely helped me understand and ap- preciate the association even more is being the Chairman for the 2007 Annual Forum in Montreal. I am sure everybody knows how hard people work at the FTA office, but I had a firsthand opportunity to find out for myself and it was and will be one of the most memorable experiences I will ever have in my career. My hat's off! " -David Nunez, Graphcis Specialist/Supervisor, International Paper "Belonging to FTA has given me an opportunity to belong to a community of people that share a common goal; to advance and improve the technology of flexography. This benefits our customers and our businesses." -Dave Watson, Vice President Packaqinq, American Color "Being a FTA member has helped us access the people and information needed to improve our process and products. FTA events and the Prepress Council are great ways to us keep cur- rent with industry friends and contacts and add to our network." FTA's Golden Anniversary Today's Testimonials -Greq Price, Art Director, Mark-Maker Co. "FTA needs to continue to speak to issues that confront the flexo industry today, and keep its members in the know on topics such as; what's new in the industry and what's the cutting edge, how do I do a better job printing, and making sure we know how the other printing industries are changing to challenge flexo." -Joseph T. McCarthy, Senior Research Scientist, International Paper "FTA is a source to know-how to do the right thing the right way. It must continue to touch on all aspects that affect the printer beyond the technical standpoint. Its environmental programs are most important. Membership is essential to stay in touch with progressive activity in the industry and to improve our own activity proactively!" -Phyllis Kerr, Global Packaqinq "FTA is about learning, networking and participation. I attended my first Forum 22 years ago, at which time I knew very little about printing. I am still learning. FT A and the individuals I have met over the years have been instrumental in helping develop the employees and the printing process at our facility. Important programs to me are Flexo in High School, which I have been fortunate to be involved with over the past nine years, operator certification and FIRST a process that has estab- lished control and consistency in flexography. I look forward to new programs such as TEST and my continued involvement in the FTA." "FTA provides the perfect balance of technology based information and relationship building strategies to help anyone in the flexographic print industry." -Michael J. Orcutt, Senior Account Executive, RR Donnelley -Jim Brown, Cryovac, Sealed Air Corp. 128 FTA 50th Anniversary Journal
