Welcome to TLMI, North America’s premier association for the label and narrow web packaging industry. I encourage both association members and nonmembers to explore this website and to learn about what TLMI has to offer. Members will also discover some new resources and tools that will assist their companies with their own business goals and strategic planning purposes.
In these pages you will find information about our upcoming events, including the TLMI Converter and Annual Meeting as well as the TLMI Technical Conference. Industry members will also learn about the TLMI L.I.F.E. (Label Initiative for the Environment) Certification Program. The program is the only certification tailored to the label and narrow web packaging industry and is available to both converter and supplier members. One of my central goals as Chairman is to reinforce TLMI’s mission as a sustainability-focused association. TLMI continues to be a leader in helping our members achieve ways they can implement best environmental practices into their companies and to position themselves in front of their prospects and customers as dedicated stewards of the environment.
I also want to draw attention to the information we have about TLMI’s committees on the website. TLMI has a range of committees that develop and drive key association directives and goals. Joining a committee is a great way to network with other TLMI supplier and converter members and to provide input into new directions the association is taking and into potential new resources and benefits for our membership. I strongly encourage members who haven’t done so already to join a TLMI committee and to network with, learn from, and share your ideas with fellow members.
You will also find information on tlmi.com about TLMI’s wide range of studies, research and reports that are available to our members. The association’s Ratio Study, Standards Manual, North American Label Study, Government Affairs Overview and Index & Trend Report have all made TLMI the leading source of information for the North American label and packaging industry. It is also one of my primary goals as association Chairman to ensure TLMI continues to deliver valuable information resources and the most relevant market intelligence to our members.
One of TLMI’s core value propositions is to help foster and facilitate strong relationships and networking opportunities for our converter and supplier members. This is an area in which TLMI excels. If you are not yet a member of TLMI, the site will give you a good introduction to the benefits and insights our members enjoy. If you have any questions or would like to learn more, I urge you to contact TLMI headquarters and one of our staff members can give you more information about the association and all that TLMI has to offer.
