We need to remember to stop saying NPRA at the end of January and call it by its new name AFPM.
Since NPRA announced its name change on 4 October 2011 (see ICIS news article: US NPRA to become American Fuel and Petrochemical Manufacturers), word has been slowly filtering into the industry consciousness.
But old dogs are slow to learn new tricks, and emails are now going round setting meetings for the 2012 International Petrochemical Conference (1-3 April in San Antonio, Texas), all titled "NPRA meetings."
Yesterday the Blog heard that members have received in the post a small package of logoed goodies from AFPM, including a mug, to get us using the new name before the conference.
No doubt the ICIS Houston staff are sharing these around the office in the spirit of the Editorial Guidelines on sharing gifts from the industry.
