Plastics News Executive Forum 2012
January 29 - February 1
From Capitol Hill to the halls of the federal agencies, Bill Carteaux and his advocacy team at SPI: The Plastics Industry Trade Association put the voice of plastics manufacturing in all the right ears. Be sure to join Bill at the Plastics News Executive Forum on Monday morning during the Association Leaders Panel when he’ll outline the industry’s public policy targets for 2012, including a Senate legislative proposal that could pull processors into the TSCA web and extended producer responsibility (EPR) legislation lurking at the state level. Carteaux will also explain how three recent free trade agreement successes benefit plastics manufacturers and how the 2012 elections could impact your bottom line. Bill will also provide an insider’s look at final preparations for NPE's big move to Orlando.
