PDGA Committees & Working Groups

PDGA Committees oversee specialized areas of the organization and provide guidance and make recommendations to the Board of Directors. PDGA Working Groups function in the same manner as Committees, however, they only convene as needed to address specific issues. Unlike Committees, Working Groups do not hold regularly scheduled meetings nor are they required to submit reoccurring reports to the Board of Directors.
