PMPA Virtual Town Hall Meeting - Spring 2020

Thursday June 04, 2020

PMPA's Cate Smith, Miles Free, Renee Merker and Carli Kistler-Miller hosted PMPA members for a PMPA Town Hall virtual meeting on May 28, 2020.  Cate provided an update on the latest information PMPA has been offering to members, including podcasts and the new Technical Tuesday webinars.  Working with Matt Gilmore, they are reviewing the current affinity programs and considering new proposals to expand member benefits and savings. Cate further described the changes to the June meeting of the PMPA Finance Committee and Board of Directors - to be a hybrid meeting of online and in-person review and discussions to accomplish their goals.

Renee shared plans for the October 22-25 Annual Meeting and how she is working to provide a more current list of topics and speakers to meet members' immediate needs. She is also in regular contact with the Big Cedar Lodge in Ridgedale (Branson), Missouri so the necessary steps will be taken to promote a safe meeting. The resort itself is on 4,600 wooded acres with multiple lodging options, including family cabins. Carli explained and promoted the new Mastery Program and tours postponed from May and now hopefully set to begin in August, and Miles reviewed the latest business trends, economic outlook, PPP, and COVID resource news. 

Questions were answered during the live Q&A session, and staff appreciated the positive comments and kudos that were shared by the attending members.

PMPA staff hopes our members continue to stay busy!   Know that we are here for you - you are there for each other - and we are better together!  Please call if we can be of any assistance!
