In 2013, Fibre Box Association (FBA) started offering free monthly webinars aimed at bringing focus and attention to key industry issues. The webinars occur on the third Wednesday of each month and include such topics as the introduction of new data reports, technical, sustainability, safety, and environmental discussions and other pertinent topics. FBA is using the webinars to create additional conversations about the many virtues of corrugated packaging.
