A Special Thank You to Rhonda Douthit 

As I shared during our membership meeting in Seattle, our PCACAC Executive Assistant, Rhonda Douthit, has transitioned from her position with us at PCACAC as of the end of September.   Rhonda served as the PCACAC Executive Assistant for many years and we are so very thankful to her for all that she has done for our organization!  

While it will be difficult to find someone to fill her shoes, we certainly know that Rhonda will always be cheering PCACAC on. Thank you Rhonda for your many years of service to PCACAC! - James Massey, President

It's Time to Renew Your Membership!

It's that time of the year - time to renew your PCACAC Membership! Many thanks to all of the members that rushed to meet our annual September 30th renewal deadline. The PCACAC office received many renewal inquiries as well as payments that are being processed. Thank you for your continued patience during the renewal rush. If you have yet to renew your membership, please know that you still can do so. Not a member as of yet? Join us now!  You are just a few clicks away from your new PCACAC Membership for 2021-2022!

Call Out for Communication Committee Members!

The PCACAC Communication Committee is looking for some seriously awesome new ideas and new folks to share those ideas. Currently the Communications Committee shares information via social media accounts and produces the bi-weekly Anchor Splash.

Ideas for the future of the Communications Committee are wide open. The goals are to keep our membership informed of what is happening in our affiliate and nationally, produce interesting/relevant content that will help us express the value of PCACAC to current and prospective members.

We are looking for energetic and visionary colleagues who can help us build and invigorate the Communications Committee. 

PCACAC asks you to consider this invitation to serve the association. Is it your time? We hope so! 

Please contact Melissa Hypolite for further information and to volunteer.
