• 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 Safety Regional Network and Site Manager Meetings

    The Process Safety Regional Networks serve as a great way for practitioners at the site-level to informally collaborate, share practices, and network, with the goal of enhancing process safety performance of all sites in the region. Once per year, Site Managers from all AFPM member-company sites are invited to attend a network meeting in their region, and experience first-hand the forum of idea exchange, plant-level discussions, and the peer-to-peer networking.

    Site Managers are invited to meet for a portion of the two-day meeting; specific times to be determined per region, so check back frequently! Any questions regarding the meeting can be directed to either Eileen Scherzinger
