IMDA is dedicated to education, development, and growth of IMD/IML technologies and markets. Executive director Ronald B. Schultz says the fledgling organization is launching a membership drive. It currently has close to a dozen members. A website is in development, and members will publicize the group at NPE 2006 in Chicago this June. Schultz is founder and president of RBS Technologies in Scottsdale, Ariz., a consulting firm active in flexible packaging and IML. He created the directory-type website, SourceIML.com, which provides free listings of companies involved in IML and IMD. Tel: (480) 473-0301 • E-mail: info@imdassociation.com
