Member Milestone Recognition Program Specifications
AICC, The Independent Packaging Association, through the Member Milestone program, will recognize member companies that, in the current calendar year, are celebrating significant level anniversaries starting at 50, 60, 70, 80, 90, 100 (or more) years of continual operation.
General and Associate AICC Members, in good standing, celebrating anniversaries who wish to be included in this recognition should provide a 2-3 minute professionally produced video featuring the history of their company, describing their growth, and significant milestones or achievements.
The members that submit qualifying videos will be recognized during the AICC 2019 Spring Meeting being held at the Trump National Doral Resort - Monday, April 1 – Wednesday, April 3 in Miami, FL. The member recognition will take place on Wednesday, April 3 during the general session from approximately 9:45 am – 10:05 am. The video compilation of all qualifying companies will be shown and then the member representatives will be called on stage to receive a recognition plaque.
We will also recognize the members in a post-meeting press release, BoxScore and the final video will be posted on the AICC website following the meeting.
Each submitted completed video should be approximately 2-3 minutes in length. If you submit a video that is longer in duration it will be edited down to 2-3 minutes (AICC reserves the right to select what portion of the video to show).
We strongly suggest that submitted videos utilize:
(Hopefully) The use of historical photos of your company
Professional video editing*
16x9 widescreen format
Licensed (legal) production music**
Deadline Date: Videos should be submitted no later Friday, Feb 8, 2019. Once submitted your company will be contacted to confirm the video qualifies and will be submitted.
Video Specifications: Videos should be submitted - 16x9 widescreen, prefer mov. files
Videos can be submitted via memory stick, dropbox, data disk (but NOT a self-playing DVD). If you want to submit via dropbox please contact Cindy Huber at firstname.lastname@example.org
Videos being mailed should be sent to the following address:

Video submissions will be considered based on a first received basis (that meet the qualifying criteria, are of usable quality and meet the specifications) as we have a limited amount of time to show the videos during the spring meeting general session. If time does not allow for all videos to be shown during the spring meeting we will show some of the videos at the annual meeting in the fall.
*A PowerPoint presentation is not a video.
**Popular music cannot be used unless the company submitting the video has legally reached a licensing agreement with the music’s publisher. Simply copying music from a CD or downloading from iTunes does NOT mean that you have legal clearance for anything beyond personal use. Here are some cheaper alternatives that you can look into if you want to have music accompanying your video
