Membership Classifications

 

Below is a brief synopsis of membership criteria for the different membership classifications, however, members must review the Wisconsin Paper Group Bylaws for complete membership qualifications.

Active Membership
An applicant may apply for Active Membership in the Wisconsin Paper Group if it is a Wisconsin or Upper Michigan based manufacturer, processor, converter, printer or distributor of paper, packaging, paper related products or shaped or extruded plastics.  Additionally, all applicants must provide satisfactory evidence of credit-worthiness, must agree to adhere to the Wisconsin Paper Group policies and Bylaws and must not have been convicted of any violation of state of federal antitrust or related law nor been convicted of any felony.
 

Converter Associate Membership
An applicant may apply for Converter Associate Membership in the Wisconsin Paper Group if it is a manufacturer, processor, converter, printer or distributor without a Wisconsin or Upper Michigan based plant, provided, however, that a Converter Associate Member may only ship commodities with the Wisconsin Paper Group which have been manufactured, processed, converted or printed in Wisconsin or Upper Michigan by an Active Member of the Wisconsin Paper Group.  Similar to an Active Member, an applicant must manufacture, process, convert, print or distribute paper, packaging, paper related products or shaped or extruded plastic.  Additionally, the applicant must provide the corporation with satisfactory evidence of its credit-worthiness, must agree to adhere to the Wisconsin Paper Group policies and the Bylaws and must not have been convicted of any violation of state or federal antitrust or related law nor been convicted of any felony.

Probationary Membership
An Applicant which does not meet the eligibility criteria for either an Active Member or a Converter Associate Member may apply for Probationary Membership in the Wisconsin Paper Group.  The applicant must demonstrate to the Board of Directors that it is more likely than not that it will meet all of the eligibility criteria for Active Membership or Converter Associate Membership within 18 months of the application date (the “probationary period”).  The rates for Probationary Members are 2% higher than Non-Probationary Members to create an incentive for qualification as an Active or Converter Associate Membership.  New members joining as Probationary Member enjoy the opportunity to receive the transportation service advantage of WPG along with competitive pricing that will be even more advantageous once the conditions for Active or Converter Associate Membership are met.

Related Entities
Companies which are related (as defined in the WPG Bylaws) to current members, such as divisions or subsidiaries, may be eligible for independent membership in the Wisconsin Paper Group.  Please contact the Wisconsin Paper Group if you have a related entity which would like to use WPG’s services.

Logistics Associate Membership
An applicant may apply for Logistics Associate Membership in the Wisconsin Paper Group if it is a Wisconsin or Upper Michigan based manufacturer, processor, assembler or distributor of fabricated metal (SIC code 34), primary metal (SIC code 33), lumber and wood (SIC code 24), furniture and fixtures (SIC code 25); non-parishable food and kindred (SIC code 20);machinery, nonelectrical (SIC code 35); electric and electronic (SIC code 36) or transportation equipment (SIC code 37). Additionally, all applicants must provide satisfactory evidence of credit-worthiness, must agree to adhere to the Wisconsin Paper Group policies and Bylaws and must not have been convicted of any violation of state of federal antitrust or related law nor been convicted of any felony.

Third Party Logistics Membership
An applicant may apply for third party logistics (3PL) membership in WPG provided that as a 3PL member it will only ship commodities with the WPG that are authorized SIC codes established with the other WPG membership categories which are manufactured in Wisconsin or the upper peninsula of Michigan. The 3PL member must also have a facility in Wisconsin or the upper peninsula of Michigan. Additionally, the applicant must provide the corporation with satisfactory evidence of its credit worthiness, must agree to adhere to WPG policies and the ByLaws, and must not have been convicted of any violation of state or federal antitrust or related law nor have been convicted of any felony.
