PDCA Committees

PDCA Committees are a significant resource to the Association, its members, and the driven pile industry. Each Committee has a Chair who is appointed by the PDCA President and each Committee has a Board Director who acts as a liaison between the Committee and the Board of Directors. Each committee meets between 4 to 6 times a year. One of those meetings is held at the PDCA Annual Conference, while the others are generally conducted by web conference.

All PDCA members are eligible to serve on any PDCA Committee(s). Any member of PDCA who has an interest in serving on one or more of the PDCA Committees or would like to find out more about the functions of each Committee, its responsibilities and the responsibilities of members should
contact PDCA by email or call the PDCA office at 904-215-4771.

PDCA members may sign up for Committee service by completing the PDCA Member Committee Request Form.
