In making the call for nominations, R&E Council managing director Ronald L. Mihills said: “The Pressroom Operations Manager of the Year Award is not for presidents and owners. The R&E Council seeks to recognize excellence in printing plant operations. Examples of leadership include the implementation of new technologies, leadership of production staff, continuous improvement in manufacturing, and promotion of education and training in the production environment. The successful nominee’s title will likely be Pressroom Manager, Plant Manager, Operations Manager, or Plant Engineer.”
The Research & Engineering Council of the National Association for Printing Leadership is dedicated to the education of printing industry personnel in the latest technologies and productivity improvement methods. The Council conducts seminars at which publishers, printers, educators, consultants and suppliers meet to share information and learn about leading edge technologies affecting the graphic arts industry. At three annual seminars -- Pressroom, Bindery, and Digital Smart Factory -- the latest technologies are reviewed in the context of actual print production. The Council also holds technology breakfasts at key industry trade shows, and an annual meeting highlighting critical trends in the graphic arts industry.
