Advancing opportunities and recognition for the petrochemical industry and for the individual members who have distinguished themselves in the industry.
THE FOUNDERS CLUB was established in 1981 by a group of petrochemical industry executives who ultimately led the formation of the International Petrochemical Conference (IPC) as a separate identity within NPRA (now AFPM). THE FOUNDERS CLUB is a select group of individuals who have served the industry with distinction for more than 25 years. We host several events each year that allow members to engage with each other to promote the sustained global growth of the petrochemical industry. Our members participate to promote and maintain our industry’s high standards and principles by proudly advancing the legacy inherited from these original “Founders”.
