NAPL Returning to Chicago for 2012 Soderstrom Society Dinner

Press release from the issuing company

The National Association for Printing Leadership (NAPL) will return to Chicago’s beautiful Mid-America Club for its 52nd annual Soderstrom Society Dinner and awards presentation on Saturday, Oct. 6, 2012, the evening prior to the opening of GRAPH EXPO 2012.

An eagerly anticipated evening of relaxation and fellowship, the annual Soderstrom Society Dinner provides the perfect venue for welcoming new inductees to NAPL’s industry honors group while rekindling old friendships and meeting new attendees in a spectacular setting with matchless panoramic views of the Windy City.

“The Soderstrom Society Dinner is a great way to start your GRAPH EXPO week,” said NAPL President and Chief Executive Officer Joseph P. Truncale, Ph.D. “In addition to being a very enjoyable social event, it provides an opportunity to meet many of the leaders of our industry and members of their families in a relaxed setting—and, of course, to take part in ceremonies that recognize key industry contributors from every field.”

Entertainment will also be featured during the evening, which begins with a cocktail hour and is highlighted by presentation of the 2012 Soderstrom Award, one of the graphic communications industry’s most prestigious honors. This year’s award recipient will be announced in coming weeks. Named for the late Walter E. Soderstrom, one of the founders of NAPL, the Soderstrom Society is an honors organization that recognizes the contributions of industry leaders, including printing firm owners, equipment manufacturers, consultants, and educators.

NAPL also welcomes industry suppliers to participate in the annual dinner as a sponsor of the event or by reserving a complete company table for their customers, prospects, or most successful salespeople. “For many business owners, the Soderstrom Society dinner is a highlight of their visit to Chicago for GRAPH EXPO,” said Truncale, “and it offers suppliers a unique opportunity to enable their special guests to be part of the evening by hosting a table for them.”

Individual tickets for the 2012 Soderstrom Society Dinner are $170 per person and $300 per couple. To register for the event, contact Donna Komlo at (800) 642-6275, Ext. 6345, or dkomlo@nap.org.
