Hello Fellow PLPA members,…

Whew! There is so much going on within PLPA and behind the scenes in anticipation of our upcoming “official” rollout at the San Antonio conference in March! In the spirit of communication, and as your committee chair – I am going to make a commitment to send out weekly updates to everyone. Updates to keep you advised of the progress the team is making – as well as information to keep the excitement going for this dynamic group!

There has been much work on the agenda for the conference in March; however, we are still looking for presenters. Presenters that have a unique business story to tell and that are willing to share their successful techniques with the attendees. Please let us know if you would like to present during one of the 50 (fifty) minute sessions. We will consider all applicants and then get back with those selected. If you are interested in presenting, please send your information to Linda Budzinski at by Monday, October 5th. The information to send should be:

Your name
Your company
Contact Information
Content Topic

Many exciting topics already grace the agenda for the conference. Topics such as:

Sales and marketing information on how to tell your story in your community - to the veterinarians as well as your other target markets.

What is important to veterinarians in the area of pet death care services? Executives from the AVMA and AAHA have been invited to share their stories and needs with our group!

What are other value-added services can you offer at your organization to clearly set you apart from others?

Here in the next few weeks I will have a report for you on the work that our committee chair, Bill Remkus, has in regards to standardization within the industry. Stay tuned for more exciting updates! And, thanks for your support of PLPA!
