Presidential Post - November 29,2012

Brentwillet2012 is winding down, and we are gearing up for the 2013 PDI year. There is still time to get involved and plan your role in your professional organization. Take a look at the committees on PDI and let us know on which you'd like to serve this year, be it Education, Legislative, Membership, Communications or Conference. Contact Executive Director Lynn Harkin at director@pdiowa.com to secure your spot.

You will soon receive information on 2013 sponsorship package opportunities. Please consider how your organization may wish to participate and promote your work through a PDI sponsorship in the coming year.

Please mark your calendar for February 27 from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and plan to participate in Grow Iowa Day at the Iowa State Capitol. It's our first major PDI event in the new year. We look forward to seeing many of you in the Capitol rotunda to help maintain and improve our influence with our legislators.

Thank you for all the work you are doing to grow your communities and our great state.
