Membership in PAC is for a two year term and there are no limits on the number of terms members can be elected. HBA members interested in serving on the PAC must submit an application and nomination to the HBA PAC Executive Committee by October 31 stating their interest and qualifications for participating in the PAC. Existing PAC members whose terms will expire in the ensuing year and are interesting in continuing to serve on the PAC must notify the Executive Committee in writing of their desire to continue on the PAC by October 31 as well.
