The PCC programs you attend, the speakers and peers you meet, the communications you receive and so much more… it’s all possible through the time and talents of PCC members who serve on our committees.
Serving on a PCC committee is a great way to contribute to the field and Chicago’s PR/communications industry. It’s also one of the best ways to get the most out of your membership through networking, creating education opportunities and employment leads, and developing long-term professional relationships.
