Volunteer-Group PPAI’s volunteer luncheon recognized the accomplishments of industry professionals who have reached the end of their committee term commitments.

At Sunday’s Volunteer Luncheon, PPAI recognized the accomplishments and commitment of those who have dedicated their time and insight in service of the industry and the Association. The reception was also an opportunity for PPAI to thank its retiring board members and committee volunteers for their service, and welcome incoming board members and officers, and volunteers.
