PMA’s committees and councils represent the lifeblood of PMA – these volunteer groups perform the work of the organization and direct its performance. Volunteering on a committee will help you develop new skills, create new connections and advance your career.
PMA committee service is a steppingstone to becoming an industry leader. Serving on a PMA committee offers skills, training and experiences needed to grow personally and professionally.

Committee leaders receive additional benefits. Volunteers who participate in at least 70 percent of their committee/council meetings may attend one General Membership Meeting for FREE or another PMA event of their choice at a deep discount.
