Leadership

PTC is led by a Board of Governors (BG) and an Advisory Council (AC).

The BG, elected by the membership, has managerial and fiduciary oversight and is responsible for the Council’s strategic development.

The AC, comprised of both elected members and BG appointees, provides valuable knowledge and industry experience to help guide the Council’s work and progress.
