Founded in 1962, the NJPEC is a non-profit, volunteer-driven organization of packaging professionals from all disciplines in the industry. We share information, hands-on business experience and support educating students in the industry through numerous scholarship programs and mentoring opportunities.
The culture of NJPEC is collaborative and professional, creating a comfortable community for learning and making valuable business connections with packaging buyers and suppliers. NJPEC keeps its members informed of hot topics, industry innovations and provides professional development tools to contribute to overall company and personal success.
Scholarships for students in packaging and design are the key focus of our fundraising. Since our inception, we have awarded well over $500,000 in scholarships to deserving college students all over the country.
The Internal Revenue Service has determined that NJPEC is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. All donations and membership fees are fully tax-deductible, less the amount of any goods or services received by the donor.
NJPEC members receive special benefits and incentives to attend and participate in all its activities. Please see our membership page for more information.
The future of packaging is being shaped by the members of NJPEC. Please join us!
