Each membership section is represented by an Advisory Council that takes an active role in the development of association programs and initiatives.

PBA encourages industry professionals to join PBA and take an active role in the association. Elections will be held in 2019 for two Advisory Council seats in each of the membership sections:

  • Beauty Professional / NCA
  • Distributor
  • Manufacturer
  • Salon / Spa

This is your chance to:

  • Play a significant role in advancing your profession;
  • Enhance the value of the Professional Beauty Association within the professional community;
  • Exchange ideas and perspectives with other volunteer leaders.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact Rachel Molepske at or 480.455.3453.
