President – FPTA.
“ALONE WE CAN DO SO LITTLE TOGETHER WE CAN DO SO MUCH”
FPTA’S FOUNDING FATHERS REALIZED THE VALUE OF COLLABORATING AND MOVING FORWARD TOGETHER FOR THE GREATER BENEFIT OF OUR FRATERNITY! LET US ALL BREATHE LIFE TO THEIR VISION AND FORESIGHT AND WORK TOGETHER TO MARCH TOWARDS SHARED SUCCESS AND GROWTH. LET’S COME TOGETHER THIS YEAR AND BECOME ONE FORCE. LET US TAKE THE FIRST STEP FORWARD.
ALL OFFICE BEARERS OF THE AFFLIATE ASSOCIATIONS MUST ENGAGE WITH THEIR MEMBERS REGULARLY. ONE MANAGING COMMITTEE MEETING AND ONE GENERAL BODY MEETING SHOULD BECOME MANDATORY. WHEREAS THE MANAGING COMMITTEE OF AFFLIATE ASSOCIATIONS SHOULD DELIBERATE ON THE ISSUES FACING THE TRADE AND HOW TO EFFECTIVELY ENGAGE WITH THEIR MEMBERS, THE GENERAL BODY MEETING COULD FOCUS ON THE FOLLOWING ACTIVITIES:
1. KNOWLEDGE SHARING PLATFORMS
2. SELF-DEVELOPMENT AND LIFE SKILLS SESSIONS
3. FAMILY DAY OUT
4. INTER-GROUP SPORT EVENTS
5. CELEBRATING FESTIVALS AS ONE FAMILY
THE RESPECTIVE VICE PRESIDENTS OF FPTA CAN WORK WITH THE OFFICE BEARERS OF THE AFFILIATE ASSOCIATIONS AND ASSIST THEM IN FORMALIZING THESE ACTIVITIES . I AM CONFIDENT THAT ALL THE ASSOCIATIONS WILL PARTICIPATE WITH FULL ENTHUSIASM AND ENERGY TO MAKE FPTA A SOCIALLY VIBRANT ASSOCIATION. FOR THE BETTERMENT OF BUSINESS AND FOCUS ON GROWTH, I WOULD ALSO SUGGEST THAT THE SLOGAN OF FPTA FOR THIS YEAR SHOULD BE
“4% TOP LINE GROWTH AND 1% BOTTOM LINE GROWTH THAN THE PREVIOUS YEAR!”
IF ALL OF US ARE SINCERE AND TAKE A PLEDGE THAT WE WILL AT ANY COST NOT DILUTE ON THE ABOVE SLOGAN, OUR TRADE IS SURE TO PROSPER AND ATTRACT FRESH AND YOUNG TALENT WHO WILL CONTINUE TO KEEP IT DYNAMIC AND RELEVANT. THE OTHER IMPORTANT ISSUE THAT NEEDS A STRONGER VOICE IS THE NEED TO MITIGATE MISCONCEPTIONS AND CREATE AWARENESS ABOUT PAPER – THAT IT IS PRODUCED FROM A SUSTAINABLE SOURCE, AND IS BIO DEGRADABLE AND RECYCLABLE.
FPTA HAS THOUGHT IT FIT TO ENGAGE IN A COLLECTIVE EFFORT TO MAXIMIZE THE IMPACT OF THIS MESSAGE FOR MAXIMUM IMPACT.
THE IDEA OF CELEBRATING “ PAPER DAY” WAS IN THE PIPELINE, CONCEIVED BY THE LEADERS AND VETERANS IN THIS BUSINESS. IT IS NOW OUR DUTY TO ENSURE THAT WE CONTINUE TO ENGAGE OURSELVES COMPLETELY AND WHOLE HEARTEDLY AND CELEBRATE “PAPER DAY”. THE GUIDE LINES FOR THE SAME WILL BE ISSUED BY THE FPTA SHORTLY. WE ARE CONFIDENT THAT THIS WILL KICKSTART UNIFORM ACTIVITY ACROSS ASSOCIATIONS IN THE COUNTRY AND EVENTUALLY PERMEATE AMONG THE GENERAL PUBLIC. TOWARDS THIS EFFORT, IT HAS BEEN DECIDED THAT 1ST AUGUST EVERY YEAR WILL BE CELEBRATED AS “PAPER DAY”.
I AM HOPING THAT THE INDUSTRY AND TRADE WILL PARTICIPATE TO ENSURE THE SUCCESS OF THIS EVENT.
I REQUEST ALL THE OFFICE BEARERS OF FPTA TO ENSURE THE ACTIVE PARTICIPATION OF ALL THE MEMBERS FROM AFFILIATE ASSOCIATIONS AND IMPLEMENT THIS CAMPAIGN BASED ON THE FPTA GUIDELINES.
TOGETHER WE CAN.
TOGETHER THERE IS GROWTH.
TOGETHER THERE IS PROGRESS.
TOGETHER THERE IS A PROMISING AND PROSPEROUS TOMORROW.
THE PAPER INDUSTRY IS ON THE THRESHOLD OF A NEW AND DYNAMIC INNING AND IT NEEDS YOU.
WE ARE COUNTING YOU IN.
