IK: "Association of the year 2020"

The Industrievereinigung Kunststoffverpackungen e.V. was awarded in the category "Communication & Representation of Interest".

The German Society for Association Management DGVM has awarded the IK Industrievereinigung Kunststoffverpackungen as Association of the Year 2020 in the category "Communication & Representation of Interest". The winning teams were announced on the occasion of the DGVM association congress in Berlin at the beginning of September. In his laudatory speech, DGVM President Peter Hahn praised in particular the self-critical but also self-confident, always fact-based positioning of the IK in a politically and medially demanding environment.

The IK understands the honor thereby as appreciation of a strategic team achievement, which reaches far beyond the borders of the federation house. "We will continue to hold course, remain constructively disputable, continue to learn and make ourselves strong for plastic packaging and the industry behind it," says IK managing director Mara Hancker.

The DGVM INNOVATION AWARD has been presented to associations and organizations for outstanding achievements in association management since 1997.
