Are you an employee of a PTDA member company and interested in volunteering? Complete the interest form and return it to PTDA or contact PTDA at ptda@ptda.org or +1.312.516.2100.

Volunteers are critical to PTDA’s success, donating time and expertise to develop programs that benefit distributor and manufacturer members as a whole.

In exchange, as a PTDA volunteer, you'll enhance your own professional development:

  • Pay it forward by giving back to an industry that has been personally rewarding
  • Build and apply your personal management skills
  • Build and apply your facilitation skills
  • Improve your presentation skills
When you volunteer, benefits also accrue to your company:
  • Improve the efficiency and effectiveness of your own company through the development and use of resources that:
    • Standardize transactional formats
    • Quantify your value to customers
    • Improve your customer service operations
    • Offer low-cost product training resources for your employees
    • Prepare your employees for advancement in your company
    • Attract and develop the next generation of employees to your company
    • Create awareness within your company of all of the above
    • Create processes and procedures for disseminating this information to the people you work with and your customers
