PBA State Captains

Want to learn more about how ALL levels of government have an impact on the beauty industry?

Want to take action on legislative matters that directly affect your industry, your business and your employees?

Want to be part of the solution?

If so, your industry needs you to volunteer as a PBA State Captain TODAY! Contact Bridget Sharpe, PBA Government Affairs Manager, to learn more and sign-up:

Are there any requirements for this volunteer position?

The most important requirement for being a PBA State Captain is: passion for upholding the professional standards of the beauty industry at your state capitol and in Washington, DC.

What do PBA State Captains do?

State Captains act on legislation or regulations that could positively or negatively impact our industry. State Captains can participate in the legislative process in a number of ways, depending on the current issue or piece of legislation, that may include:

  • Reaching out to your state, local and/or Federal representatives via email, phone, social media, in-person meetings in district or at the Capitol
  • Testifying at committee hearings
  • Participating in lobby days at your State Capitol or in Washington, DC
  • Fundraising and other event organization

What if I've never been involved in government advocacy before?

State Captains come from all segments of PBA's membership, and can be brand new to government advocacy or have existing experience. Your PBA Government Affairs Team will help you every step of the way. Contact Bridget Sharpe, PBA Government Affairs Manager, to learn more and sign-up today:
