Membership | AIChE

Membership

CCPS offers many benefits but the true value of membership lies in the extraordinary interaction and learning opportunities. The vast pool of knowledge and experience that is available to members is priceless. Members help each other, providing technical guidance and offering safety strategy suggestions.

CCPS is also a great resource for smaller companies that may struggle to provide all the resources needed to meet process safety goals. Through membership, smaller companies can leverage their development and training with other members in companies large and small. Perhaps more importantly, small companies gain access to “go-to” people in other member companies who can help them with their immediate problems.

But wait, there are more benefits

  • Gain free access to the CCPS online community containing reference documents, project information, meeting minutes and more
  • CCPS on Knovel offers the largest standalone collection of CCPS content available by subscription - over 110 resources.
  • Members receive discounts on process safety courses based on CCPS materials and discounted registration to the GCPS conference
  • Build effective networks of colleagues in other companies who can help each other solve problems

Value of CCPS

CCPS members share the costs and benefits of research, so every dollar goes farther. On average, CCPS sponsors obtain safety R&D worth 70 times the value of their contribution. What’s more, sponsorship delivers over $1.5 million in projects annually. 

CCPS Member Companies

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.
