U.S. and Canada Chapters

    PDMA offers the opportunity to network, learn and get involved through local U.S. Chapters. PDMA chapters sponsor events which offer an excellent opportunity for local involvement, networking and exchange of ideas. Most events also include a program on current topics of interest.
