Do You Have 20 Minutes to Shape the Industry?

Gain Comprehensive Understanding of Test Methods with Minimal Time Commitment

All TAPPI Standards have a Standard-Specific Interest Group (SSIG) made up of industry professionals who regularly review and vote on that Test Method. Each SSIG must have a minimum of 10 volunteers to conduct a valid review. Participation is easy. Volunteering 20 minutes or less can impact the industry and allow you to grow as an influencer by sharing your technical knowledge.

“I started in the industry 40 years ago supervising various types of testing labs,” said Jeff Lundeen, Ph.D., retired senior research director of R&D at Georgia-Pacific's Neenah, Wis. Technical Center in a recent STAR Newsletter interview. “As I began, Standards were an excellent way to bring me up to speed on how the industry tested. It’s a great way to quickly increase your knowledge and meet other experts in the field to bounce ideas off of. Overall, I became interested in Standards as a path to assisting my career and acquiring knowledge.”

There’s no better way to gain a comprehensive understanding of a test method and have input on how it works than by being part of a SSIG. Get involved now.
