PBA Advisory Councils
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 2017 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.

After the application deadline, all applications will be reviewed by that section's Nominating Committee and a slate of candidates will be proposed to the membership to vote upon. The Advisory Council term will be from September 1, 2017 - August 31, 2020.

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