They will share the fun, the joy, their involvement and the lessons learned from their long-time service to PCACAC. Enjoy the first article from Audrey Hill, former PCACAC and NACAC President, and look for more inspiring articles in the months to come.

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. Please contact Melissa Hypolite for further information and to volunteer.
