Make Plans to Attend PMPA's Annual Meeting in Orlando!

Jul 02, 2018
Hello PMPA members…

It has been my honor to serve as your PMPA president this past year.  In my travels to member shops, I have been very graciously welcomed at each plant tour, as well as the Presidents Round Table meetings.  The opportunity to engage face to face versus texting or email was a wonderful change from today’s fast pace!  It was very comforting and enriching to network and share in our successes and opportunities to improve our businesses.

We all know that planning is essential to sustaining, adapting and growing our business, and the theme for this year’s Annual Meeting is appropriately focused on “Strategies for Success.”  In fact, I did not have one conversation with a member who said, “I sure hope we don’t succeed in the business.”  Our businesses are a great example of “living and promoting the American Dream,” as reflected in the commitment to family, community and country.

Your PMPA Executive Committee has coordinated the planning of this year’s program, so please join us October 4-7 at the Ritz-Carlton Grande Lakes in Orlando, Florida for the 2018 Annual Meeting and plan on charting your company’s course to Success.

Take a few moments to review the topics, speakers and program events on the Annual Meeting website – you’ll note that this year’s Annual Meeting schedule has been mildly condensed into two and half days (and still includes the Annual Awards Banquet) – you can be home by the end of the weekend!

We look forward to welcoming you to Orlando!
