Nominations are now open for the Canadian Plastics Industry Association (CPIA) CanPlast, Leader of the Year and Lifetime Achievement Awards.
The Awards will be presented on May 4 at a special luncheon following the Annual General Meeting.
The three awards categories are:
“Traditionally, (CanPlast award winners) have been active volunteers in association and industry committees, boards and task groups,” the CPIA said. “They are recognized by their peers as having made a positive contribution to the health of the industry either through teamwork or leadership or both.”
Thirty-seven people have been honoured with the Leader of the Year award since 1966.
“They are widely recognized as having made important contributions to their businesses, to their communities and to the Canadian Plastics Industry,” the CPIA said. “Not only to they own or manage successful and innovative businesses in the plastics sector, but they have continually used their knowledge and influence to improve the competitive and environmental performance of this industry.”
These individuals are generally also active in their respective communities.
In contrast, only nine Lifetime Achievement Awards have been presented.
“These are individuals who have made outstanding achievements and contributed enduring legacies to the Canadian Plastics Industry and to the community at large,” the CPIA said.
These people are industry leaders and industry builders, the CPIA added, and are perhaps close to ending their illustrious career in plastics.
Winners receive a Life Membership in the Canadian Plastics Industry Association to ensure their continued involvement in the plastics industry.

Nominations close March 31, 2006.
