The Flexible Packaging Association annual dues are based on sales in the U.S. of all flexible packaging including converted flexible packaging, plus all materials and equipment sold into the U.S. flexible market and/or industry.
The dues payment is calculated on a formula of $0.35 per thousand dollars of U.S. flexible packaging sales, with minimum dues of $3,500 for members with sales under $10 million, and a maximum dues cap of $40,000 for members with sales over $114 million. This dues structure applies to Converters, International Converters, and Associates (supplier members).
Trade Press membership is $1,500 and Academic Membership is complimentary for universities or colleges with packaging curriculums or departments with activities related to packaging sciences.
As an incentive, the Board of Directors has approved a dues program that would enable first time converter members to phase into the full dues over time. The first year dues would be one-third the normal dues rate, the second year dues would be two-thirds the normal dues rate. The third year of membership would be at full dues.
