Painting Contractors Association

Founded in 1884, the Painting Contractors Association (PCA) is a national trade association dedicated to the success of painting and decorating contractors through ethics, education and excellence. PCA is recognized and supported by many industry manufacturers and suppliers as the premier organization committed to helping professional painting and decorating contractors improve their business.

PCA is the only trade association dedicated to the success of the nearly 310,000 painting contractors in America and Canada. PCA offers contractor members many opportunities to develop and grow through participation in education programs, attendance at local networking meetings, use of PCA Industry Standards and much more.
