The local PDCA Portland Chapter consists of painting contractors in Oregon and southwest Washington.  Member painting contractors range in size from small painting companies to large multi-state painting operations. The PDCA Portland Chapter includes residential, commercial and industrial painting contractors. Associate and Affiliate members include paint stores, suppliers and other service professionals. The Painting and Decorating Contractors of America (PDCA) Portland Chapter is a member of the National Painting Contractors Association.

The PDCA Portland Chapter meets monthly usually for dinner meetings.  At these events painting contractors have the valuable opportunity to network with other painting contractors to discuss issues relevant to the painting business. Regular education meetings and seminars include speakers on topics concerning technical, regulatory, educational and business management strategies. Most educational events qualify for Oregon CCB continuing education credits. The group is an educational resource for painting contractors who strive to be both professional craftsmen and successful business people.



With a National PCA membership base of more than 2,000 painting contractors in the United States and Canada, the PDCA Portland Chapter has access to outstanding programs, educational seminars, local and national conventions, trades shows, and a vast selection of educational resources.  The PDCA members also serve the industry in leadership roles, and reinforce the value of exchanging ideas, and sharing problems and solutions with your peers in a friendly and non-competitive atmosphere. The Portland Chapter serves the needs of both Union painting contractors and Open Shop painting contractors.
