August President's Update

Overall, what a wonderful convention. Not having a convention last year made this one even more enjoyable since we got to see everyone again.  Yes, there were some very bittersweet times remembering those who left us last year, but it was a great time to review memories of them and see some great memorial presentations made on their behalf.  May they all rest in peace.

Welcome to our new Board member, Craig Foster as VP of Communications.  Thank you to retiring VP of Communications Bruce Blom for his many years of service to the PGI.

Great news on many aspects of the convention.  We have many seminars available, vending of Class C is happening (despite the national shortages), and we will have the Trade Show and Vendor Supply.

Positive News

Planning for our convention is coming together and members are expressing their excitement about having a convention to attend this year.  As I wrote last year, “We purposely built up a ‘rainy day fund’ to handle years like last year.”  While not having a convention caused us a reduction in income we are still in solid financial shape and able to handle the extra costs of a convention this year.
