PBPA Annual Meeting

PBPA invites all members to gather together every fall for the Annual Meeting. This event is a great opportunity for networking and education, as we host several insightful panel discussions with industry experts. During the conference, members elect new committee and board members, discuss industry issues, and strengthen professional networks.
