Celebration Banquet Moved to the Spring

In Fall of 2018, the advisory board voted to move our annual Celebration Banquet to the spring. The drivers behind this move were the academic calendar, the intense fall recruiting season for internships, co-ops and full time placement, along with the variety of back to school events.  Our goals and desires are to more intentionally balance all of our activities.

From this point forward, our plans are to have our Paper Industry Career Fair and advisory board meeting in the fall, and our celebration banquet, advisory board meeting and guest speaker/professional development in the Spring annually.  Please email Jennifer Piercy at with any questions you might have.  Everyone is most welcome at all of our events!

The Pulp and Paper Advisory committee is proud to be a part of the NC State Natural Resources Foundation, Inc.  All of our events and activities are proudly supported by this foundation.  The NC State Natural Resources Foundation, Inc. supports the success of the college through management and stewardship of assets resulting in scholarships, fellowships, professorships, academic programs, research, facility and lab improvements and various student programs not typically supported through state appropriations.
