MAPP Hosts Virtual Ignition Series for Young Professionals

MAPP, AMBA and ARPM Announce Workshop Series for Manufacturing Young Professionals

Indianapolis, IN – The Manufacturers Association for Plastics Processors (MAPP) Young Professionals Network, along with The American Mold Builders Association (AMBA) Emerging Leaders Network, and the Association for Rubber Products Manufacturers (ARPM) young professional groups, is launching a new workshop series: Virtual Ignition – Lighting Your Path to Leadership.

During these monthly workshops, the associations will host a series of speakers, facilitators, and exchanges where young professionals and those new to the industry will explore how to lead through an environment of change and uncertainty. These sessions will illuminate new opportunities for leadership growth, empowering attendees to embrace new opportunities along their own path, and strengthening their ability to light the way for others. 

The first session of the workshop series will be held on May 21, 2020, at 2 PM EST. The session, “Leading during Times of Uncertainty,” will be facilitated by Alex Hoffer, Chief Revenue Officer at Hoffer Plastics (St. Charles, IL). During the session, Hoffer will explore how maintaining an internal focus on the three critical areas of work, home and self, amidst chaos and continual change provides young leaders with the perspective needed to guide others and strengthen the members of their professional and personal communities.

Workshop sessions will be held on the third Thursday of every month and will include live takeaway discussions during or after each presentation. Every workshop will be free for members of the MAPP, AMBA and/or ARPM associations. To register, visit
