OCTC is the leading advocate for Ohio’s chemical technology industry in Ohio, the third largest chemical manufacturing state in the nation. Since 1988, OCTC has represented the state’s high-tech chemistry community before elected officials, the media and public.
OCTC accomplishes this through a combination of lobbying, regulatory advocacy, member engagement, issue monitoring, sharing of news and developments, community relations, technical assistance and promoting environmental and science education through our Teachers, Industry and the Environment (TIE) program.
Sustaining members have made the highest level of financial commitment in support of the industry’s advocacy and outreach efforts in Ohio. The Council encourages all sustaining members to have a senior Ohio official accept election to the Council’s Board of Directors.
Regular members are companies engaged in the business of chemistry in Ohio and have committed to working in concert with other chemical companies to advance the common interests of all. Regular members’ dues are calculated based upon the number of full time personnel based in Ohio.
Business Partner members are companies that provide professional, support and consulting services. OCTC regularly looks to our Business Partners as potential speakers/presenters at our various meetings and events.
