As I reflect on 2021, I am grateful for many things:

  • ·         My industry friends and connections
  • ·         The ability to see colleagues in person
  • ·         An amazing Executive Director to lead our board to greatness
  • ·         A talented board that is excited to bring value to our members
  • ·         Great volunteers who help at PPAChicago events
  • ·         A new board member, Jon Hicks, who I am excited to work with

PPAChicago has many great events planned for 2022.  Be sure to read further in our newsletter for our list and save those dates on your calendar.  We are especially excited to continue with our End User Showcase on March 17th and hope you and your clients will attend.  As we continue to navigate this pandemic, we will follow CDC protocols and guidelines to bring you a valuable and safe show.

In 2022, we will be celebrating 65 years as an Association.  We will celebrate our success with a formal night in November.  This is a wonderful opportunity for us to thank you for your membership while bringing you an opportunity to gather with colleagues.  Who doesn’t like to dress up for a night out?

As a board, we appreciate your membership and support.  Personally, I am honored to have led this board in 2021 and I am excited about what the new year holds.  What can we do for you?  What tools would you like to see from PPAChicago? I want to hear from you – please reach out at druler@geiger.com. 

Wishing you the best in 2022 and beyond!

Dawn Ruler, President of PPAChicago
