"It was a pleasure to attend my
first PTNPA conference. I let the owner of my company know it was probably the
most professional, well run conference I have attended in my 22 years in the business. It is certainly a good group of
members as well as a nice mix. Thanks again."
is easy to sit in
our offices and read the PTNPA Washington Updates, articles in various
Trade publications or Newspapers and become very complacent. Almost
immediately after our first Congressional visit complacency was replaced
by the spirit of inspiration. Our Congressional Reps really
do care about what we have to say! We were undeniably a part of the
process of educating Capitol Hill about our Industry. Our comments and requests
were heard and very well received. Walking through the
Halls of Congress it became clear that we have a choice. We can be a part of
the problem or a part of the solution. I would encourage all PTNPA Members to attend future PTNPA Events in DC.”
