The Powder Coating Institute has four active committees that work to not only shape and direct the association, but also the powder coating industry. Committee membership is exclusive to PCI Members. If you would like to join one of these committees, please sign in to your profile on the website and click on Groups to select the committee(s) you are interested in.

In early 2016, the PCI Board of Directors made the decision, as a part of our strategic planning initiatives, to change our committee structure. These changes are intended to

  • improve cross-communication across our entire association
  • improve inter-committee communications
  • provide better focus for our efforts
  • reduce confusion about direction and mission of committees
  • provide opportunities for increased involvement of members
