MEMBERSHIP
If you have been in the Plastics Industry for 25 years or more, your experience is invaluable and should be shared. It has both professional and personal implications. The Western Plastics Pioneers could be that vehicle for accomplishing the sharing process.

Mature industries have changed so drastically in a generation that virtually anyone with the required 25 years of experience has made a significant contribution. The social implication of Pioneer membership involves your renewing relationships with people who were your “fellow” employees at companies who have storied pasts. Our Western Plastics Pioneers can make that happen.
