The primary functions of the Member Services Committee are to promote the use of polyurethane to the end users and disseminate useful information to members with respect to the marketing of polyurethane products, focused on the goal of member retention and enhancing the value of association membership. This is done mainly through aiding the Technical Committee with selection of technical papers and posting and maintenance of pertinent information about the case urethane industry to the web site. The Member Services Committee is also responsible for collection and dissemination of industry related information in the form of:

Polytopics Newsletter

The official quarterly publication of the PMA is the electronic Polytopics newsletter, which is produced jointly by the Member Services and Membership Growth Committees. Click here to review past issues of the Polytopics.

Case Studies

All members are encouraged to submit current, relevant case studies to publish for public review. Case Studies should be unique situations where a solution was found utilizing cast urethane materials or processes.
