Exclusive Membership

Membership in the group will be selective.  All members commit to absolute confidentiality and act in the spirit of generosity—sharing their best practices in order to help others succeed.  At the same time, members choose what they want to share—allowing them to protect sensitive company information.


All PBEC Members are entitled to:

  • Three in-person meetings a year.  These full-day meetings will be held in conjunction with our global events in Asia, Europe, and North America.  The agenda will be voted on by the membership, and include experts from Fastmarkets RISI, peer case studies, and high-level outside speakers.
  • Monthly teleconference calls.  Each month, the group will gather by phone to discuss timely changes in market conditions, hear from Fastmarkets RISI economists and price forecasters, and share knowledge.  Conference calls will be recorded, allowing members to glean insight on their own timetable.
  • A customized experience.  The membership year begins with a private consultation with your Fastmarkets RISI advisor, who is dedicated to ensuring you receive the insight you need.  In this meeting, the advisor will capture challenges and questions that you face—then help to ensure you get answers by making personal introductions to peers and tracking down information from Fastmarkets RISI experts.
