Bill Treadaway Print Leadership Forum

This year's Bill Treadaway Print Leadership Forum is scheduled to take place in March 28, 2017, at the Strom Thurmond Institute on the campus of Clemson University. 

This is the 12th Annual Bill Treadaway Print Leadership Forum and it will bring together students and faculty of the Clemson University Department of Graphic Communications and representatives from industry for a series of presentations and discussions. Industry experts will share their experiences in the field and trends they see in the industry with future graduates in the near term and beyond.

This year’s Leadership Forum topic is “In the Middle of the Future,” so we have invited key leaders from many areas of the graphic communications industry to share their insights on the past, present and planning for impact in the future.

About the Bill Treadaway Print Leadership Endowment: 

Bill Treadaway served as president of The Printing Industry of the Carolinas, Inc. (PICA) for almost 30 years. During that time, he served as a catalyst for many creative ideas and industry support in transitioning the Graphic Communications program at Clemson University from an infant program into the printing education leader it is today.

The Bill Treadaway Endowment for Print Leadership has been established to recognize and honor his lifetime contributions to the Clemson Graphic Communications program and his personal desire to foster industry/education partnerships and develop future printing industry leaders. The endowment will facilitate ongoing cooperation and engagement between printing industry leaders and the Clemson faculty. The centerpiece of the endowment is the Bill Treadaway Print Leadership Forum, which presents timely topics to Clemson students, alumni, and the industry at large. Contributions will ensure the memory of Bill Treadaway, who touched the lives and helped the efforts of so many.
