The work of the PBC is accomplished through the dedication and hard work of committees formed to manage different projects throughout the year. As with all volunteer organizations, our success depends largely on the willingness of our membership to participate on these committees and make things happen. If you would like to volunteer to work on a specific committee that could benefit from your time and skill-set, contact us and we will connect you with the Committee Chair.
