The Pellet Fuels Institute partners with other trade associations both in North America and abroad. Maintaining these relationships with other organizations in the renewable energy and forest products fields gives PFI members a wide range of access to conference discounts and research, along with an increased visibility for densified biomass in the renewable fuels arena.
PFI’s sister organization is the Hearth, Patio & Barbecue Association (HPBA). HPBA’s membership includes hearth retailers, hearth appliance manufacturers, distributors, and manufacturer representatives. An agreement between the two organizations provides for reciprocal membership between the two organizations. Therefore, PFI members are considered members of HPBA and vice versa.
PFI participates in HPBExpo each spring by hosting a membership luncheon and staffing the PFI membership booth during the show hours. Similarly, HPBA members frequently participate in PFI events, including the PFI Annual Conference, held each summer.
