Silent Auction

Securing Tomorrow's Workforce: PMMI's Silent Auction Raises Funds for Packaging and Processing Education

PMMI, The Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies, Silent Auction is back in 2024 to support packaging and processing education. Studies predict a shortage of more than two million American manufacturing workers by 2028. Our team works hard to address this critical shortage of skilled employees by promoting awareness of attractive careers in the packaging and processing industry by providing assistance and building partnerships with schools and programs that develop people to fill these employment needs.

In 2023 alone, through programs such as academic scholarships, travel assistance to industry tradeshows and program donation support, the PMMI Foundation has impacted over 12,000 students. All proceeds from the Silent Auction will go directly to the PMMI Foundation and contribute to help fund our future workforce initiatives.
