President's Corner

Lots of activities happening this month with the PDC with some great speakers coming in.  Seems like a smaller turn out than the past two years however we are optimistic some last min registrations could happen.  Online registration will end Saturday night at midnight and can accommodate a couple walk-ins however you may have to wait for your certificate and get in the back of the line for lunch.
