Exciting stuff in the air

It's been a while since I've written, but I'm back!!!! It's not because I haven't wanted to write - I really have...but you know how it is in the fall - so much to do before the holidays and at PCMA that means being 100% prepared and ready for the Annual Meeting before Thanksgiving - keep your fingers crossed.

Two major initiatives to tell you about - I hope to see you in Seattle so you can tell me what you think of them! You'll find me in PCMA Connect and at the PCMA Pavilion.

PCMA Connect launched yesterday for all attendees of the annual meeting - it's an online networking community. If you are reading this, most likely you are interested in the benefits of online information. The link is: If you are registered you received your login and password yesterday. If you haven't registered - what are you waiting for???

Are you asking yourself what is PCMA Connect - here it is in brief:
PCMA Connect is an intelligent, targeted virtual networking experience created to maximize quality networking opportunities for Annual Meeting registrants.

This simple, user-friendly system allows Annual Meeting registrants to create personal profiles, conduct targeted searches, send intersystem emails, and participate in online forums about the latest industry trends.

PCMA Connect for the Annual Meeting launched on Tuesday, October 16th and will remain active through 2008.

This means that when you connect with people before and during the Annual Meeting - you can keep that connection throughout the year!!!

I also wanted to promote a new area at the Annual Meeting called the PCMA Pavilion. New in 2008, the PCMA Pavilion offers you a respite in the middle of a busy meeting. Created with your needs in mind, the PCMA Pavilion is a comfortable place to meet up with friends and colleagues during the meeting, relax between sessions, or plan out your schedule.

With couches and chairs to relax in, you can also find demonstrations of the new PCMA Website, learn about membership and leadership opportunities, learn about PCMA’s events for 2008, and see demonstrations of PCMA products and services.

I look forward to meeting you all in Seattle - you'll find me in the PCMA Pavilion. But before then you'll find me on PCMA Connect.
