Committees & Projects

PRIA is involved in multiple projects on a year-round basis. Projects are managed by committees or work groups that meet, discuss and ultimately produce all projects and publications, and help advance PRIA standards throughout the property records industry.

Joining a PRIA committee or work group is a great way to get involved with PRIA and learn about changes to the property records industry. By joining a committee or work group, you can contribute directly to the creation of new standards and get an early view into new technologies and trends.
