Four advisory committees — the Measures Advisory Committee, the Quality Improvement Advisory Committee, the National Quality Registry Network (NQRN) Steering Committee and the Advocacy Advisory Committee — oversee the work of PCPI®'s four "pillars of activity," which are unique to our organization.
Volunteering for PCPI Advisory Committees
Volunteering to serve PCPI through committee membership is a rewarding experience that allows you to grow your professional network, learn more about PCPI's activities and help direct the future growth of PCPI. We rely on the expertise, leadership and commitment of our members to contribute to the organization's goals.
Any member (or staff member) of a PCPI member organization is invited to apply for consideration. Appointments are decided by the Advisory Committee chairs. Members of PCPI Advisory Committees serve staggered three-year terms, that begin in October.
Service on committees is highly rewarding and mutually beneficial. Committee members contribute directly to the advancement of the PCPI mission and vision; in turn, PCPI members share their expertise, expand their knowledge and engage in valuable networking.

The committee focuses on performance measures and supports activities related to the PCPI measurement science program. Learn more about MAC.
Quality Improvement (QI) Advisory Committee

Advocacy Advisory Committee
The Advocacy Advisory Committee (AAC) leverages PCPI’s long-established expertise and visibility to be a voice of our stakeholders in regulatory and policy issues that impact their efforts in measurement science, quality improvement, and clinical registries.
