At the end of each year, PCA Committees discuss public policy items they would like to advocate for in the following year. Once approved by the Public Affairs Committee, the public policy agenda is then provided to the PCA Board of Directors for approval. The 2021 Public Policy Agenda was approved by the Board in November.
