    • 2 points/Elite member referred


    Members earn points on a continuous basis and points are accumulative. Your points will not expire unless you drop or cancel your IoPP membership.

  • John Bitner

    IoPP is saddened to share the news of John Bitner's passing. John was a member for over 30 years and very involved in IoPP's leadership for many years. IoPP and the packaging industry will dearly miss John.

    A link to the obituary is below. 

    John's wife, Deb, has requested a  virtual “Zoom Irish Wake” for John on Friday, May 29th, starting at 5:00 pm Eastern. The format will be people telling the story of how they met John and then share one story of working with him. After that it will hopefully become a truly virtual Irish wake.
