PCRID Board & committees


Who We Are& What We Do

PCRID's Board of Directors are elected members of the organization charged with carrying out PCRID's administrative functions. In addition to each Board member's specific duties, the Board holds General Membership Meetings and meets quarterly to discuss the organization's business.

These leadership positions are rewarding and give members the opportunity to build camaraderie among professionals in our field.  Elections take place at the PCRID Annual Conference during the Business Meeting and each board position has a two-year term. Incumbents may run again and eavery member's vote counts. Consider running for a Board position and make a difference in your profession and communities.
