The mission

Our Voice for You

Through our consultative relationship with agency leaders, we advocate for our members in high-level discussions and planning. PMA prides itself in being an advocate, a leader, a collaborator. We engage other agencies, Congress, and the press to elevate our voice and protect our members’ work-life quality. We care greatly about good government and will speak out when we see opportunities for change.

Our members are committed to continuously improving the lives of those in public service. We support that goal by providing opportunities for our members to network, learn, advocate, and be the best leader possible.

Member Benefits

We are a dedicated IRS manager and management official (active and retired federal) association. Our members represent a vast diversity, yet our voice is singular. PMA Members receive access to member-only benefits, discounts from PMA sponsors, continuing education webinars, and other resources. Above all, PMA members benefit from simply being part of a community with a common goal - to bring outstanding leadership to the IRS.

Our Success & Current Issues

For over four decades, PMA has been instrumental in protecting the benefits and quality of work-life for managers, management officials, and non-bargaining unit employees, as well as promoting and ensuring new benefits for members. Areas of focus for PMA have included:

  • Working with agencies to promote fair and equitable treatment of managers in pay banded and pay for performance systems.

  • Working to ensure managers get “Left on the Table” performance increases as a cash award.

  • Fighting for and winning the same benefits for FERS employees as CSRS related to sick leave upon retirement.

  • Negotiating with agencies to get them to cover at least half of managers’ professional liability insurance premiums

  • Pressing the Congress for multiyear budget authority for the IRS so the agency can finally undertake badly needed modernization projects
