NPCA 2019 Budget Update

The NPCA Board of Directors recently passed the 2019 budget at the 53rd Annual Convention in Providence, R.I. This budget includes a few key items, including increased funding to expand outreach to specifiers, contractors, owners and students and a price drop on PQS I, an online course, from $495 to $99 effective January 1, 2019.

To offset these initiatives, the Board also passed a 7% dues increase beginning for the membership year 2019. All members will receive 2019 dues statements soon, if you haven’t already. This increase, the first in six years, was approved as part of the Board’s commitment to preserve and strengthen the financial health of NPCA while continuing to provide top quality programs and services to our members and our industry.
