Community Advisory Panel
Year established: 1990
The mission of the Lake Charles Community Advisory Panel (CAP) is to establish and maintain dialogue between the community and Phillips 66 in order to understand community issues in an environment of trust and mutual respect. Company management and panel members regularly discuss the facility's operations, environmental and safety performance, community involvement and other issues that CAP members deem important. Recent topics have included the role and responsibility of the Department of Environmental Quality, the state of the refinery, legislative issues, workforce development and the economic outlook for southwest Louisiana.
Members of the CAP represent nearby neighbors, businesses, government, education and students. Phillips 66 is committed to the exchange of information with these groups. Also, members participate in several annual community outreach projects sponsored by the refinery, which include delivery of Thanksgiving baskets to the elderly and a Christmas lunch for a low income housing development.
The Lake Charles CAP has approximately 15 citizen members and four company members, with an average meeting attendance of 12.
Meetings are held on the first Wednesday of every month in the late afternoon.
