Happy Trails…

Hi All,

“Happy Trails to You…..” December 31 will be my last day at PA Presenters. I wish I could have called everyone to let you know in person, but it has been a little busy here prepping the board for their New Year’s adventure. Besides – most of you are busy getting ready for APAP. (The PA Presenters Consortia meeting will be held January 13 at 8am.)

Why am I leaving, you ask? Because it is time.

I have loved working for PA Presenters for 18 years (well – most of the […]

It’s almost conference time!

OK, we are getting close to conference time and we have some housekeeping details that we would like to pass on to you now. You will probably want to refer to them again later!

The front doors of the hotel are located on Smithfield Street but that is not where the Valet Parking is located due to city ordinances that they hope will be changing soon  (not before the conference). The Valet Parking is located on Sixth Avenue on the side of the building, which is the corner of Smithfield and Sixth. Please look […]

Wingharts Market Square began as a small counter in Market Square with a simple philosophy: what if you took the preparation practices of a world class fine dining restaurant and applied it to simple “bar” food? Buffalo sauce that uses bacon grease during the emulsification process? Burgers ground seven days a week? […]
