Members receive free copy of the Institute’s newsletter and bulletin and free admission to technical talks and are entitled to special rates to Conferences and Seminars organised by the Institute.  PRIM organises an annual Polymer Seminar, usually in March.   PRIM initiated and are a major sponsor of the National Symposium of Polymer Materials (NSPM) which is now into its fourteenth year.

Sections

The Institute is organised into 5 major sections: rubber, plastics, education, membership and publication & communication.  The Institute is basically run on a voluntary basis and members can volunteer to serve in any or all of the 5 sections.  In addition, a Young Members’ Section is just starting up under the leadership of committee member Francesca Netto.  Activities planned include all the above mentioned plus social events and factory visits.
