The PDCA is a Non-Profit Organization formed in 1884 by a group of painting contractors, specifically to address industry issues. Today, the PDCA exists to assist the professional and licensed painting contractors, suppliers and paint manufacturers by providing quality programs, services and opportunities essential to the success of its membership. PDCA members participate at a National, Council and Chapter level. At the national level you will have access to Industry Standards and industry specific publications and the national PDCA website. PDCA promotes education through Contractor College and the PDCA Accreditation Program. PDCA also protects the interests of contractors through representation at the local, state and federal level.
When you become a member of the Local Chapter, you will be a member of the PDCA at two different levels. As a chapter member you’re invited to attend chapter dinner meetings with informative speakers discussing the issues that affect your business today. These meetings also give you an opportunity to learn from the leaders in your industry. You will also be a member of the North East Council PDCA. The North East Council offers a yearly conference, educational seminars, workshops and leadership training and produces a quarterly magazine. These levels of the PDCA are a resource for industry publications on business management, technical information, health and safety software, employee training and recognized paint industry standards.
