FPA Converter, Converter/Associate, Associate and International Converter Dues
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 should be calculated using the following formula:
All qualifying U.S. flexible packaging sales under $10 million, minimum annual dues are $4,500.
All qualifying U.S. flexible packaging sales between $10 million and $114 million, annual dues are $0.45 per $1,000 of annual sales (sales volume x $.00045). Example: A company with annual sales of $45,678,000 would multiply $45,678,000 x $.00045 and pay dues of $20,555.10.
All qualifying U.S. flexible packaging sales over $114 million, maximum dues cap of $70,000.
Members who acquire other members within a fiscal year will be responsible for the outstanding dues of both companies.

Tax Deductions for Lobbying Activities
Contributions or gifts to the Flexible Packaging Association are not tax deductible as charitable contributions for Federal income tax purposes. However, they may be tax deductible under other provisions of the Internal Revenue Code. For tax year 2019, we estimate 13% of dues are related to the organization’s lobbying activities. Please consult your tax adviser.
