Committees & Councils

Many of the accomplishments and successful programs at PCBA are the direct result of committees and councils. They are the backbone of a strong association. Through committees, we are able to bring together the knowledge and expertise of industry members. Serving on a committee is one of the easiest and most fun ways to network with other members. Anyone from a member company is welcome to join a committee.

Most committees meet at the PCBA office during the noon hour and lunch is served. If you are interested in attending a committee meeting to "check out" whether you might be interested in joining, just call the PCBA office. The staff will notify you of the next meeting. It's always your choice regarding the level of involvement that you might like, but one easy way to find out is to attend a committee meeting.
