A Letter from the PMPA President, PMPA 76th Annual Meeting

Dear Industry Colleague:We’ve seen unprecedented spending by the federal government in recent months under the new administration. That includes plans to implement a public option for healthcare coverage.

Dear Industry Colleague:

We’ve seen unprecedented spending by the federal government in recent months under the new administration. That includes plans to implement a public option for healthcare coverage. Will this lead to a single-payer system that limits choice and increases costs?

What does the future hold for our healthcare system and how will this impact us as employers? This is just one area that will be addressed at the 2009 PMPA Annual Meeting scheduled for October 24-28 at The Westin Savannah Harbor in Savannah, Ga.

In addition to the healthcare focus, we’re going to hear from one of the most respected business turnaround specialists in the country, Al Horner. We’ll learn how to take proactive steps to improve our profitability, even in these challenging economic times.

Our attention will then shift to the economic outlook for 2010, with a presentation on business trends and where we’re headed in the coming year. Find out how to position your company for the opportunities that lie ahead. This information will be invaluable as you prepare your business plan and forecast for next year.

The association’s retained lobbyist, The Franklin Partnership, will share the latest details from the nation’s capital on legislation and new mandates that could significantly impact our businesses and personal lives. This is an interactive session with two Washington insiders, Omar Nashashibi and John Guzik. You’ll have the opportunity to ask them questions about where things are headed under the control of the current administration and Congress.

Please join me and take part in this year’s conference. We have a great program ready for you, along with plenty of networking opportunities. Reconnect with your peers at a critical time for our industry. See you in Savannah.
