State of PLPA Address -- Tuesday, April 13

Hello Fellow PLPA Members, 

As the Chairs of the PLPA, we have been hard at work in putting together the next steps of our wonderful group! We have compiled the information from the surveys that were handed out at the meeting a few weeks ago in San Antonio and are ready to come together, report these findings and establish next steps. 

Per our strategy that we outlined at the San Antonio meeting a few weeks ago, we are ready to form the committees that will continue to move our organization forward. Furthermore, we are ready to provide some answers to you for your needs with the PLPA given the other compelling answers on the surveys! 

We come to you with two requests:
