|Committee Volunteer Opportunities|
Many of PPA's projects, programs, and policies are a result of committee work. PPA encourages members to get involved by serving on a committee. Most committees conduct much of their work via conference calls hosted by PPA. Although, in-person meetings are called as necessary. These in-person meetings are usually held at the PPA office in Harrisburg or as part of the Annual or Mid-Year Conference. A list of all current active committees and work groups are listed below. Committee descriptions can be found by clicking the committee name.
