Membership Costs

To determine the appropriate dues for a company, we begin by evaluating the company financials available within the annual report. We would then contact the company to discuss our proposed dues amount. Once an agreement on dues has been reached, CCPS invoices the company and provides a receipt upon payment.

CCPS Emeritus Program When a CCPS sponsor representative reaches retirement age, he or she has attained a wealth of experience and knowledge of Process Safety.  Most of these individuals have been dedicated to Process Safety over many years, and when they retire they wish to continue contributing for many years to come. 

Such members would make both technical and financial contributions to CCPS, guide CCPS direction, mentor the next generation of CCPS, and in most if not all ways continue their participation in CCPS as they did when employed.
