What our members say

"I never got ANY business advice for the first 25 years, until I joined the PCA".

 Ron Rice, Ron Rice Painting & Consulting 

“My Company is in it's 67th year of which 65 years have been as a PCA member. I attribute the training, education and camaraderie available to me over those years from my PCA membership to the length and success of the Company. There is no other Association or Organization equal to PCA in the Painting Industry!.“

Dave Ryker, Midwest Decorating Co, Inc.  in Indianpolis, IN

“Joining [PCA] and working towards our accreditation has been hands down one of the best things we've done to help grow our business and ensure we're doing things right. It has been invaluable to be part of a group who is striving for excellence just like we are, and as a new painting business being able to connect and learn from others has been incredible.“

Ryan Turry, Headwaters Painting, LLC  in Minneapolis, MN

“We are all about quality, and [PCA] Industry Standards line up with my own expectations. [PCA] provides a seamless blueprint on how to run the best Painting Company you possibly can. It’s all about quality and culture."

About The Painting Contractors Association

We know that contractors want to build a life that they are proud of but running a painting company has its unique challenges and it’s impossible to find enough time to do everything that’s on your plate. Sometimes you doubt that you’ll even succeed on your own. But you shouldn’t have to go it alone.

At the PCA, we see your hard work and your brilliant craftsmanship and you are not alone. Since 1884 the PCA has built a community of paint contractors like you who continue to raise Industry Standards.

Being a member of the PCA will help you grow to new heights. We would love for you to join our community to access member benefits and build the business you are truly proud of.

So, become a member and take advantage of everything the PCA has to offer.

By being a member you will be on the path to grow your business having the strong backing of a community of members who share your passion and are motivated to succeed with you. You don’t have to do this alone.
