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

  • Pay it forward by giving back to an industry that has been personally rewarding
  • Build and apply your personal management skills

  • Improve your presentation skills
When you volunteer, benefits also accrue to your company:
  • Improve the efficiency and effectiveness of your own company's talent development programs through the development of resources
  • Explore and understand wider trends in the talent development field in an informal setting
  • Build a network of business relationships with others who are seeking to better understand the new world of work
  • Elevate the reputation and visibility of your company within the industry on many levels

PTDA Foundation Committees

PT WORK Force® Education, Research & Knowledge
PT/MC employers will be better educated and more knowledgeable about hiring trends and practices because of the research and communications developed, curated or distributed by the PTDA Foundation.

PT WORK Force® Outreach
PT/MC employers will be supported in building their own pipeline of candidates for future openings.

PT WORK Force® Recruitment and Retention Tools
PT/MC employers will be supported in recruiting for current open positions and retaining employees.

The education, research, knowledge, resources and tools developed by the PTDA Foundation will be of such high value to (1) PT/MC companies that they will contribute funds to support the efforts, (2) other industrial distribution associations that they will license or subscribe to use of these resources for distribution to their members and (3) individuals in the PT/MC industry that they will contribute funds to support a specific initiative and leave a legacy for the support of future efforts.
