• Workshops

    AFPM is always watching for opportunities where we can be of service to our members.  As we see hot topics that lend themselves to our members getting together to share ideas and experiences, or learn about new regulations, etc., we will put together one-day meetings to facilitate the exchange of information.  Watch this page for information and announcements.  If you see a need that you think AFPM could fill, contact us at meetings@afpm.org and we'll make sure the request is directed to the correct individual here at AFPM.

    AFPM 2014 Workforce Training & Development Forum

    The purpose of the Workforce Training & Development Forum is to give individuals with similar training responsibilities an opportunity to share information about their companies’ programs with their peers, benefit from the experiences of others, discuss specific topics in a roundtable discussion format, and envision what steps AFPM can take to support members’ training activities in the future.

    Registration is limited to AFPM refining and petrochemical members. If you are unable to register please send a request to trainingforum@afpm.org.
