PPTA Committees/2017-2018 Committee Chairmen

Committee Members

The committee structure provides an opportunity to discuss issues confronting transportation providers and a process to comment or recommend action to the PPTA Board of Directors. Our committees contribute significantly to the process of developing proposals and evaluating the impact of regulatory and public policy initiatives upon the industry. They offer guidance and support in the development of educational programs and subcommittees are often formed to further define training needs and address specific issues. All members are offered the opportunity to join and participate in a variety of committees, which are the workhorses of the association. Each committee is led by a PPTA member who has extended the commitment to be of service to both our association and their peers.
