The work and purpose of the Purchasing Management Association of Boston today reflect the early intentions of its founders to "create acquaintance and foster the exchange of knowledge." The governing body for the organization is the Board of Directors. The Board is elected annually by PMAB members. The Board's tasks are to review the Strategic Plan, create a professional development program for membership meetings, and provide vision and leadership.
Other association work conducted by volunteers includes committee activities in areas such as membership development, public relations, business survey data collection and minority business development.
