PQA's Membership Passes Revisions to Bylaws:
Paves the Way to Provide Greater Opportunities for Engagement and Leadership Roles
PQA opened up the 2014 year with an electronic vote of the full membership to make several changes to the PQA Bylaws. PQA is pleased with the results of the electronic voting process.
