About the San Diego Chapter

    We became a Chapter in 2008 after operating for two years in conjunction with the PDMASoCal Chapter. Thanks to the interest and involvement of our members and supporting organizations, we have successfully conducted numerous events and have grown in numbers as we work to help improve the effectiveness of product development and management for our members in the San Diego market.  We supplement and enhance the resources produced by the National PDMA organization through networking opportunities and meaningful local events on a regular basis.  We welcome your interest in PDMA and invite you to join us in building this important resource.
