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.
Our members are committed to community. We are a not for profit association supported by member fees and co-ordinated by a volunteer committee elected each year at an Annual General Meeting.
We welcome new ideas and invite you to join us.
Next Meeting: Wednesday, 3 April 2019 (Bayview Room, Parks Hall, 7pm)
