The Plastics Industry Association (PLASTICS) has made great strides this year on behalf of our members. With you in mind, we’ve elevated our brand to better position ourselves to tackle issues relevant to the entire plastics supply chain. We are more prepared than ever to make you, our members, more globally competitive in the marketplace.

It’s time to start thinking about your 2018 membership renewal, so take a moment to explore these frequently asked questions (FAQ).

Thank you for your continued participation and for joining us in shaping the industry.

 

  • How much are my dues?

    Dues are calculated based on a company’s annual sales.  Exact calculations and reporting definitions can be found on the annual renewal form.  The only exception is for Service Provider members, who pay a flat rate for dues.

  • What time frame do the 2018 dues cover?

    Our dues are based on the calendar year and cover January 1 through December 31, 2018.

  • Where do I get the renewal form?

    A hardcopy of the form was mailed to your company’s Voting Representative.  An email copy of the form was sent to your company’s Voting Representative, Alternative Representative and NPE Exhibitor Contact.

  • What do I do with the renewal form?

    The form should be returned to the PLASTICS Membership Department by email, fax, or postal mail.

  • When is the renewal form due?

    The renewal form must be received by September 30, 2017.

  • What happens if I don’t return the renewal form?

    If we don’t receive your renewal form, your company will be invoiced for the same rate as 2017, but with a 10% increase.

  • Who is my company’s Voting Representative?

    Please contact the PLASTICS Membership Department.

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

    Please contact the PLASTICS Membership Department. 

  • When will I receive my invoice?

    We expect to begin mailing invoices on November 1, 2017.  Like the renewal form, a hard copy of the invoice will be mailed to your company’s Voting Representative.  An email copy of the invoice will be sent to your company’s Voting Representative, Alternative Representative and NPE Exhibitor Contact.

  • Am I eligible to receive any discounts on my membership?

    You may take a 2% discount off your membership dues if the dues are paid in full by January 31, 2018.

  • What is the final deadline for paying membership dues?

    All membership dues must be paid by March 31, 2018.

  • How can I pay my dues?

    We accept checks, ACH, wire and all major credit cards. Credit cards are accepted by fax or phone. Before initiating payment, please ensure that you have our current banking information, which can be found on your dues invoice or by contacting the PLASTICS Membership Department.

  • Can I pay my dues online?

    The PLASTICS team is in the process of updating our systems to include this functionality.  Online dues payment is not available at this time.

  • What happens if I do not pay my dues by March 31, 2018?

    Your company’s membership to the Plastics Industry Association will be terminated and you will no longer receive member benefits.

  • Why should I contribute PLASTICS PAC?

    Over the years, PLASTICS has developed positive working relationships with policy makers, allowing us to convey our comprehensive legislative agenda. The Plastics Industry Association PAC (PLASTICS PAC) is an important advocacy tool that compounds the resources of people employed by the plastics industry and gives them a voice in Washington, D. C.

    By selecting "Yes" you are indicating that we may ask for contributions to the PAC.  If you select Yes in the box below, we will be in touch to discuss next steps (we will not solicit anyone until we speak with you first). Please note that companies are only allowed to give one trade association this permission per year; by agreeing, you are indicating that your company has not given authorization to any other associations.

  • Why should I contribute to The PlastiVan® Program?

    The PlastiVan® Program is a great way to excite young people about the science and vast career opportunities the plastics industry has to offer. Please consider donating to PlastiVan to help connect High School and Middle School students to STEM initiatives and expand their education on the power of plastics.

    Please consider donating any amount to Plastics Industry outreach to High Schools and Middle Schools for STEM education and career presentations on plastics such as the PlastiVan program.
