President's Message

headshot of president of PPC Jeremy HenryHey PPC Folks,

I hope everyone has been able to stay healthy and safe over the last 4 months!
I wanted to drop a quick note to say thank you to everyone who helped the PPC Board turn a challenging year into a success! We have all learned a new way of doing business and conducting meetings; and for the PPC membership to stay connected the way we have is truly a testament to the strength of our association.

Below is an update of the ‘PPC Live’ events and a reminder about our Spring meeting in Tampa.

  • ‘PPC Live’
    • Over 300 people in attendance over 7 weeks
    • 5 technical sessions
    • 1 virtual tour
    • 1 virtual happy hour
    • Note: Thank you to everyone that participated or presented, ALL of you made this a
      huge success…PPC is alive and well!
  • Spring Meeting
    • February 28 - March 2, 2021
    • Renaissance Tampa International Plaza - Tampa, FL
    • Note: Reservations are now open

So far, 2020, does not look like it is going to slow down or go out quietly. As the challenges of 2021 start
lining up, we, as an association, are getting ready for the future. We are moving forward with plans for
both Spring and Fall meetings … at some point, life and business will have to normalize where face to
face interaction will be a necessity.

As always, the safety of our members is a priority, and the BOD will be monitoring every situation that
might impact our getting together. Some companies might be restricting travel while others may allow
it; we will cross that bridge together when we get to it!

I know one thing, the PPC is not about location, attendance or even meetings, it is about US…it is about
people! Because of this, I am optimistic about 2021, and I cannot wait to see all of you in Tampa!
Please…stay healthy, grow your business, and enjoy the upcoming holiday season!

Jeremy Henry
PPC President 2020-21
