We are always keen to welcome new members to our PDAC community! A growing and engaged membership is critical to the association and we are pleased to introduce our New Member Referral Program.

Current members can refer new members at any time and be eligible for monthly rewards and incentives. If you know an individual or company who would benefit from being a member, use the ‘member search’ feature in the members portal to determine their membership status. If they're not a member, invite them to join or let us know and we will connect with them!

If you’re joining the PDAC for the first time and were referred by an existing member, don't forget to note this on your membership application.

To get started, login to your account and click the Member Referral icon on your dashboard.
