Annual Dues Announcement

The PACA Board of Directors voted unanimously to reduce the annual dues to $150.00 effective April 1, 2016.  Many of the similar organizations across the Country charge annual dues plus charge for meals.  Your PACA organization includes your meal prices in the annual dues plus the annual Christmas Party for the member and a guest. In January 2016, the Board of Directors added the Associate Member status and it may be applied for and held, if granted by the Board of Directors, by individuals who were former fully paid Members for a total of five years and who retire from a position that allows membership in PACA. The annual Associate Member fee is set at $75 and the member is entitled to all the benefits of the full paid membership he maintained for the minimum of the previous five (5) years.

The dues decrease is effective for renewal or new memberships April 1, 2016.  If you have any questions please contact one of the board members.
