The PACWEST Technical Conference symbolizes the interdependence of those who develop technology in the pulp and paper industry and the many suppliers of related materials and equipment.
In the mid 60’s, a technical development formula evolved as the basis for planning, conducting and evaluating these Conferences. Three groups, the C.P.P.A. (now known as PAPTAC), the Pacific Coast Branch, the Western Branch and Waiting Room #6 of the International Brotherhood of Migratory Peddlers (IBMP) contribute to the Joint Conference Committee, now known as PACWEST. The Conference leadership alternates between the two Branches with a Vice-Chair in charge of technical papers, who becomes Conference Chairman the following year. The IBMP has a leadership succession which provides experienced co-chairs responsible for all Conference arrangements. The pulp and paper technical departments focus on the technical highlights of the day.
