PDCA currently has four forums representing industry specialities of contractor members. Members are encouraged to participate in Forum activities as part of their educational pursuits.
The PDCA Residential Forum is a peer-driven national platform for all residential painting contractors, offering inspiration, education and support. We provide the resources needed to run a successful company by sharing relevant information on how to improve upon your current operating systems. Whether you have 4 painters or 40 painters, there is always information to be shared and learned.
The PDCA Craftsmanship Forum is dedicated to the promotion of the painting trade through “Excellence in Craftsmanship”. This is accomplished by defining and assessing the skills standards for a Master Painter, developing standard operating procedures. The Forum is a platform for PDCA Contractors to discuss craftsmen issues, techniques and to inspire the next generation of painting craftsmen.
The PDCA Commercial is the special interest group for the commercial painting contractor. The Forum delivers education and training on topics of interest to the commercial contractor.
The PWP Forum is the special interest group for woman in the coatings industry. Both craftsmen and owners meet to learn and discuss information important to the successful operation of their respective businesses.
