The Composite Panel Association (CPA), founded in 1960, represents the North American composite panel and decorative surfaces industries on technical, regulatory, quality assurance and product acceptance issues. CPA sponsors members-only annual meetings each spring and fall. These events feature speakers and educational workshops on substantive industry issues, exhibit and sponsorship opportunities to build awareness of members’ products and services, and business meetings to develop policies and programs. The annual meetings offer a unique opportunity to network with CPA producer members, distributors, suppliers, end-users and other colleagues.
