Top 5 Reasons to be a PCA Member

PCA membership provides a community of trusted peers and resources to help grow your business and to recruit and train the best employees in the industry.

Check out five of the top ways PCA members can set themselves apart in the industry.

1. BUILD TRUST WITH CUSTOMERS

Quality customers hire quality contractors they can trust, and the PCA seal lets your customers know you can be trusted. PCA is the only association in the United States that provides standards and ethics to protect both contractors and customers. PCA members can add our seal to their websites, emails, marketing collateral and work vehicles. As the industry leader, the PCA seal will let your customers and prospects know you are in the top tier of painting companies, setting you apart from your competition.

2. ACCESS UPDATED EDUCATIONAL CONTENT

New training resources–including live webinars, videos and interactive workshops–are consistently added to PCA’s fast-growing library of member-only educational resources. Topics range from business management and finances to human resources and business growth. Members also receive deep discounts on virtual workshops that take a deep dive into a topic and guide attendees in creating customized master plans to immediately implement in their business.

3. ONBOARD EMPLOYEES WITH THE TRADE BEST PRACTICES

PCA’s newly released Trade Best Practices is being used by companies across the nation to onboard new employees and teach them basic trade skills. In February 2020, a member-exclusive training system will be added to provide a full plan for employers to quiz employees and administer tests for skills demonstration.

4. BECOME ACCREDITED CONTRACTORS

PCA Accreditation is yet another way to set yourself apart from competition. Upon completion of our accreditation program, you’ll have access to a seal and exclusive resources to show your customers you’ve risen to the top among your association peers. Our program requires continuing education and business documentation to maintain your status. In addition, accredited contractors have prioritized standing in the Find-A-Painter search results.

5. SAVE ON INDUSTRY EVENTS

The annual PCA EXPO is the world’s leading event for painting contractors to learn the most up-to-date industry information, network with other contractors, gain applicable advice for business growth, participate in roundtable discussions and receive innovative business training. Members receive an exclusive EXPO rate and discounts on other industry events throughout the year, including workshops and training sessions.

And there’s much more to PCA membership–the Ask-A-Peer network of top contractors, leadership development, Find-A-Painter, Ask-A-Painter Live, Industry Standards, panel discussions, forum conferences, safety resources, business support and industry updates. PCA is dedicated to providing you with all the resources you need to grow your business and become more profitable.
