|New Member Track|
PDCA is excited to welcome all new members into our Member-To-Leader (MTL) Tracks! New Members at PDCA are equipped with top industry information, peer-to-peer support, and clear pathways to the tools they need now.
The New Member Track is the first part of the MTL Tracks, and new PDCA members are immediately entered onto this track when they join PDCA.
Foundations (digital logo)
The New Member Track starts out with Foundations. This is the official introduction to PDCA and grants new members access to the digital logo. Foundations features 3 quick-start activities:
1. “Get To Know PDCA” webinar This is the one-stop-shop for learning all about PDCA and MTL Tracks straight from PDCA National staff! PDCA National staff will cover the basic history and benefits of PDCA, and guide members on how to access the tools that they need as quickly as possible! This is a LIVE webinar that occurs each month, generally on the second Thursday at 3:00 pm Central.
2. The Member-To-Leader (MTL) Profile helps new members understand and select their customized growth tracks through PDCA resources. The profile selects for segmentation and stage of business growth, and helps members identify goals, challenges and opportunities for business growth.
The MTL Profile is located in Contractor College/ Course Catalogue/ Basic Training/ “MTL Profile.”
3. A Contractor College webinar or video
Foundations is completed by attending a Contractor College event such as a LIVE webinar or a video in the Contractor College video catalog. The video,"Using the PDCA Logo To Get More Business" is highly recommended and can be viewed in Contractor College/ Course Catalogue/ Basic Training/ “Using the PDCA Logo…”
When these items are complete, notify firstname.lastname@example.org or any PDCA staff member to receive your PDCA digital logo.
The New Member Track also offers Basic Training webinars every month which are archived into our Basic Training catalog in Contractor College which cover the most highly demanded topics in the painting industry and in our association. Basic Trainings are found in Contractor College/ Course Catalogue/ Basic Training. These videos and monthly webinars bring in the brightest minds from PDCA to present on the following topics:
Networking Roundtables (coming soon!)
Online roundtables and discussion forums allow members to focus on their stage of business growth in the painting industry. Roundtables will feature discussion with contractor peers on Residential, Commercial, or Craftsmanship topics within select stages of business growth. These Roundtables are set up as webinars, but participants can speak and send questions in real-time if they desire.
Completing the New Member Track—which includes attending or viewing MTL Basic Trainings and two New Member Roundtables (with one live event)—awards members the Tri-Star Achievement which unlocks extra benefits on the Engaged Member Track including an on-ramp to 5-Star Accredited Membership, and access to the Leadership Track.
