Hear From Our Members

"Volunteering holds a significant place in my life, driven by a belief in the interconnectedness of people and the pivotal role that community plays in our collective successes. The warmth that fills your heart when witnessing simple acts of kindness—someone extending a helping hand, bringing tears of joy to anothers eyes, or assisting with heavy bags—is the true reward I cherish. Beyond the act itself, the opportunity to build genuine connections and develop a fondness for others while contributing to the well-being of the community is the icing on the cake."

Brian McQuaid | American Pest | Account Specialist

"I've been a participant in PMA seminars and dinners for several years. However, it wasn't until I joined the Community Service Committee and eventually took on the role of Chair that I truly recognized the invaluable benefits of being part of the Association. Actively engaging with PMA allowed me to cultivate and expand relationships that have proven beneficial, both personally and professionally. Volunteering with the Community Service Committee has brought me immense joy in contributing to others' well-being and witnessing the positive impact we can achieve as a collaborative committee."
