The Plastic Pipes Conference Association (PPCA) was formed to organise and run the series of Plastic Pipes Conferences on behalf of the international plastics pipes industry.
Member associations of the PPCA are the PE 100+ Association www.pe100plus.com, Plastics Pipe Institute www.plasticpipe.org, PVC4Pipes www.pvc4pipes.com and The European Plastic Pipe and Fittings Association www.teppfa.com represented by Hans Pierik, Tony Radoszewski, Adolf Seidl (Chairman), and Tony Calton (Treasurer) respectively, all as voting board members. In addition, Zoran Davidovski (PPXVIII Chairman) and Sarah Patterson (PPXVIII US co-vice chair) are serving on the board as non-voting members. Each of the conferences is intended to be self financing and any profits from one event are re-invested in future conferences, educational tools or “spin-off” events. The mission statement of the PPCA is as follows:
"PPCA is a global association dedicated to the ongoing creation and distribution of technical and application information on plastic pipes systems in order to educate and expand their safe, cost effective and sustainable use."
