PAT Committees

Join a PAT Committee!

PAT is known around the state and country for being a strong and powerful union.  Part of what makes this possible is the strength of our committees within the union.  Our committees give members a way to be involved based on their own interests.  Most of our committees are open to all members. We want you to get involved.  Your voice will make a difference. 

RSVP for any PAT Committee Meeting here.

Most Committees meet about once a month in the evening.  Committee meeting dates and start times are available on our calendarCommittees with an * are open committees, and all PAT Members are welcome to attend.
