In the Spotlight: Prakash Malla, Ph.D.--On Top of the Mountain

Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

Member Prakash Malla, Ph.D., began life in very unique circumstances, but it is his 22 years of active participation in TAPPI that he says helped carve out a very successful return on investment for him and his company.

Dr. Malla joined TAPPI after arriving at Thiele Kaolin Co. and he has been an active member ever since. He says Thiele was not only supportive of his joining, but encouraged him to become involved in many different activities. It’s a relationship he calls truly "win-win."

His message to professionals just getting started in their careers is straightforward: Join TAPPI! "You can choose the activity or activities you like. It can be as simple as joining one of the Common Interest Groups to helping in a local section meeting." Whatever you choose, he says, getting involved will help accelerate your knowledge-base and, as a result reap multiple benefits, for your employer – and ultimately, for you.

Find out more by reading this month’s Member Spotlight. Spotlight participants are recommended by fellow members and staff. If you would like to nominate a member just send their name (or names) to MemberSpotlight@tappi.org. We will forward a Spotlight Questionnaire to fill out and return.  

We look forward to seeing you in the Spotlight!
