Why Join?

CTPMA Inc. is the recognized voice of independent petroleum marketers. CTPMA exists to promote the interests of its members engaged in the sale and distribution of retail gasoline, lubricants, and wholesale fuels. CTPMA has a long and proud history having been founded over 25 years ago. In order to fulfill our mission of helping independent petroleum marketers grow and prosper, we need support from a strong base of both petroleum marketers and supplier businesses that sell directly to our membership.

There are many advantages and benefits to joining CTPMA:

Marketer Advantages and Benefits

CTPMA is a marketer-directed forum for sharing mutually beneficial information, learning from each other and discussing issues with our supplier that can positively impact the marketer channel. The association has developed a strong working relationship with supplier  management and has accomplished several changes on behalf of all marketers.

The success of CTPMA is dependent on the support and participation it receives from its marketers. In order for our voice to carry the maximum weight possible, the Association must have an active membership base representing the majority of retail, lubricants, and wholesale fuel marketer businesses. Membership in CTPMA helps represent the best interests of CTPMA marketers, and the multi-branded vendors who supply them.

Your membership helps keep us strong and provides you with an opportunity to be heard and to input into CTPMA’s activities. Your opinion matters and is solicited regularly through our membership surveys. Other benefits include:

  1. A collective voice for communicating business issues and opportunities from a marketer’s perspective to supplier management
  2. Ongoing representation of marketers interests
  3. Networking opportunities with other marketers and industry experts
  4. Regular communications on issues impacting the marketer channel of trade
  5. Opportunity to attend CTPMA’s Business Forum & Tradeshow along with other membership meetings
  6. Access to senior management within supplier organizations

An enrollment invoice can be downloaded for your membership. Dues are based on your annual gallonage sales volume of combined  fuels or lubricants. Just select the appropriate dues for the product line that applies to your business. If you are a full line marketer (both fuels and lubricants), select the higher of the two dues schedules that apply to your business, not both combined.
