Dear fellow members,

I hope everyone is finding some time to enjoy this summer despite these ever-evolving difficult times. During such times, it is more important than ever for us to come together as an association and explore ways to overcome the challenges presented by the pandemic.  With that said, it is my honor to invite you to the PMPA 2020 Annual Meeting.

We have all experienced new, unforeseen challenges in our workplaces, at home, and in our personal lives. Our goal for this summit is to create a space for all of us to learn from our different experiences and discuss what has worked, and what hasn't.  As you know, the PMPA is a haven for these conversations and as difficult as this time has been, we look forward to presenting a group of speakers that will help each of us overcome the wide range of challenges we are facing.  Throughout the event, we will have the opportunity to reflect on the past year and prepare for the new opportunities to come.

I am confident that this meeting, in particular, will be most rewarding since we have so much to gain, as corporations are re-evaluating their global supply chains at every level; thereby by creating immense opportunity for our industry. The speakers we are inviting will be addressing these topics and providing resources and tangible takeaways to help us make the most of the opportunities, while protecting us and our workforce.

Join us October 22-25 at the Big Cedar Lodge in the Ozark Mountains of southern Missouri as we ReFocus, ReGroup….and ReConnect!  Hope to see you there!
