Mexico City — Mexico's national plastics industry association has introduced new statutes and elected a new executive commission.
The commission will meet for the first time Sept. 3 and appoint a president and treasurer, Anipac (Asociación Nacional de Industrias del Plástico AC) said in an Aug. 30 news release.
It promised to publish details of the statutes and appointments in a release that same day.
Members approved the measures at an extraordinary general assembly in the Mexican capital. Anipac, which did not allow reporters in the meeting, did not say how many members attended.
In April, when it took the unprecedented step of postponing for four months the elections of a new president and commissioners for unspecified reasons, membership stood at 194, spread between 46 micro, 75 small, 42 medium-sized and 31 large companies. Of the total, 52 were processors.
Founded in Mexico City in 1961, the association is widely considered the face of the country's plastics industry. Juan Antonio Hernández León has been its president for 28 months.
