November President Update

This is a brief update on the progress being made as we arrive at the end of 2021.

Plans are moving along for our convention in Newton, IA July 30 through August 5, 2022.

Costs are going up in many areas of our economy and we are facing this with our costs to put on a convention. We are working to keep our costs about the same as past conventions, but this will be a challenge for this convention.

Work is currently being done on the online system and you can expect renewal notices in December if your membership expires on December 31. 2021.  You are encouraged to wait for your first notice, but you can renew at any time from now and until Dec 31, 2021.  There will be several of the notices starting with 30 days before and ending when you renew.

If you do not renew before your membership renewal date you will renew at the new member price of $100.00. 

The bulletin and calendar are in progress and being prepared to mail at the printer.  This was a bulk mailing to minimize postal costs so be aware that their arrival time after they are all mailed varies depending on where you live.  Julie has done a great job keeping our database for members and their addresses accurate so if you have not gotten your bulletin by December 6th please let me know at

On behalf of the PGI Board, I want to wish you and yours a bountiful and Happy Thanksgiving!
