PTDA Foundation

PTDA Foundation

As the charitable arm of the Power Transmission Distributors Association, the PTDA Foundation champions education and research initiatives relevant to the power transmission/motion control (PT/MC) industry that enhance the knowledge, professionalism and productivity of industry stakeholders.  

Incorporated as a distinct entity from PTDA and governed by a Board of Trustees, the Foundation is a not-for-profit, tax-exempt 501(c)(3) corporation whose operations are funded entirely by its own program revenues and tax-deductible contributions from industry corporations and individuals. Unlike PTDA, which serves both its members and the PT/MC industry, the Foundation is dedicated to serving the industry as a whole. 

PT WORK Force®

The PTDA Foundation will be a key partner in enabling PT/MC companies to recruit new employees and attain a sufficient, vibrant workforce. 


We are accomplishing this goal with a major workforce initiative: PT WORK Force®.
Three PT WORK Force® committees of industry volunteers will be developing resources to help PT/MC companies be:

  • Educated on hiring trends and best practices
  • Empowered and supported in building a pipeline of candidates for future openings
  • Empowered and supported in recruiting and retaining new hires
