Stronger voices, increased opportunities, reduced costs

We help the chemical industry leverage resources and maximize impact by forming consortia to achieve shared research, testing, regulatory, and advocacy goals.

Strength In Numbers

BCCM creates and maintains the operational framework for consortia in the industrial, agricultural, and specialty chemical business communities so that members can focus on substantive issues most pertinent to their needs and essential to their success.

More About Us

Our Services

B&C Consortia Management Services Overview

BCCM’s goal for our consortia clients is to ensure that each consortium’s interests are protected and immunized from antitrust concerns, and each one’s voice is heard on a wide-range of regulatory, scientific, legal, policy, and related issues.

Administration Services

BCCM's administrative and management support services provide consortium participants the time to focus on substantive issues, rather than administrative and organizational ones, to ensure that the consortium's interests are protected and immunized from antitrust concerns, and its voice heard on a wide-range of regulatory, scientific, legal, and related issues.

Communication Services

BCCM understands the necessity of timely and accurate communications among consortium members. To ensure all consortium members are aware of news and developments affecting their chemicals and have timely access to key documents, BCCM offers a range of support services tailored to facilitate internal and external consortium communication needs.

Financial Services

BCCM appreciates the importance to member companies of controlling costs, developing accurate budgets, and tracking costs and budget items carefully on a real time basis. By offering a variety of options for assessing management costs, including monthly flat fees, hourly incurred time, and other approaches, BCCM provides member companies a high degree of business certainty.
