Organizational Membership

PICC seeks to establish mutually beneficial and transparent relationships with member organizations. For-profit organizations may not be members of PICC but are invited to be PICC supporters. Elected officials and government representatives may participate in PICC activities and taskforces as guests; membership and Board participation will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. Partisan organizations may not be members of PICC.

Criteria and Process for Organizational Membership
