Take a moment to explore these frequently asked questions (FAQ).
 

  • How do I log in to my account?

    Log in using your email address as your username. If you do not remember your password, use the “forgot password” link. If the system does not recognize your email address, use the “forgot username” link and enter your email address again – this may trigger the system to recognize you if you are in our system but have never logged in before.

    If you are locked out of your account due to too many failed login attempts, please contact our system administrator at aremener@plasticsindustry.org to unlock your account.

  • How much are my dues?

    The PLASTICS Board of Directors adopted a new dues structure at the 2018 Fall Board of Directors Meeting in September, effective for 2019 renewal, to simplify the process of determining a company’s membership dues without disclosing revenue and to address the association’s broader scope of work worldwide. Dues now will be based on revenue bands rather than requiring you to report specific revenue numbers to calculate dues by a formula. The intent is to lessen concerns about confidentiality of revenue numbers. The only exception is for Service Provider and Brand Owner members who pay a flat rate for dues. Also, these dues bands will be based on global plastics revenue for the parent company, not just U.S.-based sales.

    In today’s era, PLASTICS is an advocate for the U.S. plastics industry on a global scale battling new tariffs around the world while at the same time pushing for more free and fair international trade and collaborating with our partners on global environmental challenges. Our chief economist is deeply plugged into the real issues affecting your company on a global basis.

    We also collect and report on international trade statistics that are of significant value to our members. In addition, the PLASTICS Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Packaging Materials Committee has been actively engaged for years in helping drive international regulations that either use, or are very close to, U.S. Federal Drug Administration (FDA) requirements.

  • How can I pay my dues?

    We accept checks, ACH, wire, and all major credit cards.

    When you renew online, you will be prompted to Pay Now with a credit card. If you do not wish to pay by credit card, choose the option “Request an Invoice” and our staff will send you your invoice. The system may require that you enter a PO number – if you do not have one, simply enter a five-digit code, such as “00000”. Please see the bottom of this invoice for check, ACH, and wire details.

  • What timeframe do my 2019 dues cover?

    Our dues are based on the calendar year and cover January 1 through December 31, 2019.

  • Where do I get the renewal form?

    Renewals have been moved to an online platform. A form is no longer required. Please proceed to the online platform by clicking the "Log In and Renew Here" button at the top of this page.

  • When will I receive my invoice?

    You will not receive an invoice without completing the online renewal form. When you navigate through the online renewal, you will be prompted to Pay Now with a credit card. If you require an invoice, select the “Request an Invoice” option and our staff will send you your invoice. The system may require that you enter a PO number – if you do not have one, simply enter a five-digit code, such as “00000”. If you choose the Pay Now option and pay with a credit card, you will receive a receipt but not an invoice.

    The only exception is if your company is classified in the Brand Owner category. Brand Owners can obtain their invoice by clicking on the "Log In and Renew Here" button, logging into their account, clicking on “CLICK HERE to begin renewal,” and then click on “CLICK HERE to review open invoices.”

  • What is the deadline for paying membership dues?

    All membership dues must be paid by January 1, 2019.

    If renewal payment is not received before January 1, 2019, your membership status will be subject to suspension.

    Note to NPE exhibitors: you must maintain continuous membership and be in good standing to qualify for the member discount on exhibit space and to select space in the member category.

  • How does my membership affect my NPE® exhibitor benefits?

    For those exhibiting at NPE®, member companies must maintain continuous membership and be in good standing to qualify for the member discount on exhibit space and to select space in the member category.

  • How do I change my company’s Voting Representative?
