IPA Committee – Impactful Initiatives Molding the PDI Landscape

IPA committees are the lifeblood of our industry.  Committee involvement provides members with an active way to be part of the association and have a say in its direction of our industry. In 2020 the IPA implemented a new committee structure designed to leverage the collective industry thought leadership to efficiently drive positive industry change.

Watch as committee leadership discussed the critical initiatives undertaken by the IPA Community and how you can engage and lend your expertise to these industry changing initiatives.
