The Middleport Community Advisory Panel - CAP
Established in the late 1990’s, the FMC Middleport Community Advisory Panel (CAP) serves as a forum for open discussions between members of the Middleport and Royalton-Hartland communities and representatives of the FMC Middleport Plant.
Through regularly scheduled monthly meetings, the CAP provides an opportunity for local residents to meet face-to-face with the plant manager and other company officials to discuss community issues, environmental concerns and FMC activities.
This panel is the result of the Responsible Care initiative of the American Chemistry Council (ACC), which encourages member companies to regularly communicate with their neighbors and to respond to their concerns.
CAP membership is derived from a cross-section of the community and includes but is not limited to: parents, teachers, law enforcement, business professionals, clergy, students and retirees. Members are selected by community leaders and serve a three-year term on the panel.
