Event Details

The ARPM leadership team wanted to create a space for all rubber industry peers to get together for a few hours at an ARPM Sponsor facility to network, learn, and have good food/drinks. Whether you are an owner, engineer, EHS director, plant manager, this event is the perfect opportunity to get away from your desk, see what is new in the industry, and network with potential business connections. Facilitating in-person networking events are a great way for ARPM to positively impact the success of everyone in the rubber industry by offering a decicated time to engage with our great industry throughout the year. 

ARPM will be hosting an ARPM Connects event each quarter, in different regions to give as many members the chance to participate each year. If you are a local to the region, within driving distance, or happen to be in the area - please plan to join us! 

Admission is $25 for ARPM members and $35 for non-members, and there are no speakers or sales pitches, just a great night connecting with real people. Bring your business cards, make new friends, connect with like-minded people in the rubber industry, or simply mingle with your peers.

For our first ARPM Connects Event, ACE Laboratories will be hosting a summer BBQ at their facility. We hope you will join us for a cookout, yard games, and more. 

Event, dinner, and hotel locations will be included in your confirmation email.
