Christian Rössel steps down from the MPkgS Committee

Christian Rössel has stepped down from the Midland Packaging Society’s (MPkgS) committee.  To mark the occasion, Tim Barbary, chair, noted how much he had appreciated the support and advice that Rössel had given the MPkgS for many years, including his time as Chair of the then East Midlands Packaging Society.  Barbary noted the challenges and opportunities this position holds and to commemorate Rössel’s service, Barbary presented him with a copy of the book Material World: A Substantial Story of Our Past and Future  by Ed Conway.  The book contained an insert where everyone from the committee had written a few words to thank Rössel for all his help and kindness.  Rössel thanked everyone, saying he might be stepping down but would continue to support the Society where and when he could.
