Midwinter Meeting

While official PPIRS business was transacted at our virtual Midwinter Meeting on 1/17/17,  PPIRS has reserved meeting space at the “non-virtual” Midwinter Meeting in Atlanta.

Past chair Roz Tedford, myself, and others will be meeting on Saturday, Jan 21, from 9-10 a.m. in the Westin Augusta Ballroom A.  Anyone wishing to discuss PPIRS topics, or just get together with other members from the Section is more than welcome to join us.


-Dave Schwieder, PPIRS Chair, 2016-2017
