PPGH Committees

PPGH is only successful because our members contribute their time and effort to help our meetings, events, and workshops benefit the whole membership. We always are looking for new members to get involved in the guild and working on a committee is an excellent way to contribute to the guild and also get to know other guild members. Please fill out a committee application if you want to join a committee.
