Honorary Membership

OCCA recognises and appreciates individuals’ contributions to the association & industry through its Honorary Member status – a prestigious award for services rendered to the association and its members.

No boundaries exist within OCCA, geographical or otherwise, and OCCA’s membership comprises men & women of all ages, in many countries, from a wide range of disciplines and from a broad spectrum of industry sectors. Members may choose to continue to develop in their original chosen disciplines and places of employment or move from sector to sector, broadening their experience and careers; either way, the professionalism and knowledge base of OCCA members increases steadily and reflects on the strength of the organisation.

OCCA Corporate Sponsorship Scheme

The newly launched Corporate Sponsorship Scheme is rapidly increasing in popularity. Apart from the prestige value and increased exposure that a company or organisation receives from this form of membership, it also offers increased marketing opportunities.

Your company will join a growing number of influential companies and organisations who see Corporate Sponsorship of OCCA as a valuable business tool, as well as an opportunity to express support for the Oil and Colour Chemists’ Association.
