FLiP – Future Leaders in Plastics

Future Leaders are Created Today

Innovation thrives on people with passion.

PLASTICS and the Future Leaders in Plastics (FLiP) Committee are devoted to supporting and encouraging the next generation of plastics leaders who will play a crucial role in the innovation, technology and future of the plastics industry.

To engage, develop and retain future industry leaders, PLASTICS is focused on leadership development, mentoring programs and relationship building opportunities for professionals under 40 years old. Improving the perception of the plastics industry and developing a strong workforce begins with cultivating future leaders who will shape our success.

FLiP’s mission is to provide young professionals in the plastics industry the exposure, education and resources they need to build a lifelong career in plastics, with the broader goal of ensuring the continued growth in size and sophistication of plastics manufacturing and its workforce.

  • Helps young plastics workers develop their careers and their involvement with PLASTICS.
  • Encourages other young people to consider a career in the plastics industry.
  • Hosts quarterly meetings to ensure continued progress on the group’s initiatives and welcome new members.
