Portarlington Community Association

The Portarlington Community Association (PCA) is a group of community members that advocates and champions local issues on behalf of the residents of Portarlington.  We work together to provide a forum for local residents to share concerns, interests and visions for our town. When necessary the PCA represents the community in discussions with all levels of government and community.
We encourage, foster and sometimes coordinate community activities to achieve our goals.  We are a not for profit association supported by member fees and co-ordinated by a volunteer committee elected each year.  We welcome new ideas and invite you to join us.
