2021 Annual Conference & Trade Show

The recent PMAA conference, held in State College at The Penn Stater Hotel and Conference Center was a flurry of activity – the annual business meeting was held, resolutions were adopted, awards were bestowed, the exhibit hall buzzed with displays and renewed acquaintances, and a jam-packed program of education sessions took place. And, most importantly, PMAA’s new executive team for the 2021-2022 year was elected. Additionally, we extend our sincere thanks to all our conference sponsors – we could not have had such a successful event without your support.
