Loews Ventana Canyon Resort
Tucson,  Arizona
October 6 – 10, 2022

Dear PMPA members,

As PMPA President, I would like to invite you to our PMPA Annual Meeting! This year’s
meet-up occurs from October 6-10 at the lovely Loews Ventana Canyon Resort in
Tucson, Arizona. I cannot overstate the opportunities for knowledge and networking
at this event. Bruce Mehlman heads our esteemed list of speakers.

Even as the pandemic recedes, unfortunately, we face challenges with inflation, rising
fuel costs, and political unrest both home and abroad. While COVID weighed heavy
on our people and hospitals, manufacturing rose to meet the challenge. We may not
have all the answers, but we have enough solutions to make a difference, and I have
never been prouder to be part of manufacturing.

Another reason to smile…after several years of inactivity, the PMPA Educational
Foundation is up and running again and they will be hosting a golf outing at the
Annual Meeting! The first Educational Foundation grants were awarded in December
2004. I look forward to hearing more success stories about funding training in the
industry.

Thank you for your support of PMPA. I encourage all to attend our meetup this
October. There is no better opportunity to connect with people who have succeeded
in the face of supply chain disruption, skilled labor shortages, and other issues–and
have a blast doing it! I hope to see you there!

Kind regards,

Aneesa Muthana
PMPA President
CEO and President, Pioneer Service Inc.
