“State of the Industry Across North America: A Regional Association Town Hall” 

A Panel of Regional Association Leaders

Moderated by Mark Farrar, Exec. Dir. of GCPPA, SPPA & PPA Mid-South

Join regional executive directors from east to west and north to south and in between as they answer your questions about what is happening around the country and Canada as we continue to work through the social, economic and health issues created by the global pandemic. Learn what is working and not working in all parts of North America and what is opening up and what is still closed up tight. Find out what other professionals are seeing, feeling and experiencing and the questions they are facing. 

Attendees Will Learn:

  • What are the biggest challenges faced by regional associations throughout the USA and Canada
