In today’s environment it is imperative to continually sharpen our skills, seek new information and maximize the level and variety of services and products offered. This is where PDA is so valuable. PDA not only provides information about polyurea technology to the industry, we provide forums where members can interact with one another – at meetings, through articles in the newsletter, and on committees. Developing these business relationships make you more engaged in the industry and more profitable.
In short, PDA is a resource; an asset. The association provides you with over 350 like minded members all dedicated to the growth of the polyurea and all other thick-film elastomeric coatings industry. There is no other association that you can turn to for the answers and support for polyurea and all other thick-film elastomeric coatings technology as PDA.
What other members have said:
As a member of PDA, the biggest benefits I get from my membership is early awareness of new material and equipment developments and best practices to ensure a successful application. I also enjoy networking and meeting new people year after year. I am a strong supporter of the growth of technology, and I want to be part of an organization whose goal is to make it succeed, by ensuring that the right materials are used for the proper applications and that the job will be done right, by offering superior training.
I joined PDA partly because of project leads and product inquiries from the PDA website. By networking at our conferences or by contacting other PDA members I have shared and learned from other member's experiences as we work together towards a common goal – polyurea development. I also support the growth of the polyurea industry through PDA’s training programs. Personally, I enjoy being a part of an association dedicated to improving the quality of our industry. Where else can you have a direct impact on improving an industry and being recognized for your contribution? The Polyurea Development Association
The PDA is a forum where everyone involved in Polyureas (large or small) can get together on a level playing field, contribute ideas, and discuss what is best for the industry. We can network and find out how we can best help our customers, learn what is new and how Polyureas can best fit different market niches. The PDA is an excellent place to stay in touch with this ever changing and improving technology. If you are out of Polyureas for a year, then there will be a lot of catching up to do as it is a fast growing market and the technology is improving daily.
As a member in PDA the single best benefit I get from my membership is early awareness of market trends and developments. I also get great benefits from networking/meeting the right people; I support an emerging technology, continue my education, learn about successes and failures, and contribute to the growth of the industry. I continue my membership in PDA year after year because I support the growth of polyurea technology and to help PDA being the ONE source for any question pertaining to polyurea.
The importance for me to be a member of PDA is as simple as letting my customers know that I am a professional, and that I belong to the only national organization that promotes and trains to the highest standards on the technology of polyurea.
