Happy New Year, Fellow PLPA Members!  I trust 2010 ended successfully for all of you and that you and your organization is poised for a very exciting 2011! 

The year ended on an exciting note for the PLPA group.  In an end-of-the-year meeting held with the committee chairs, incredible progress has been made on the projects lined out for the association at the 2010 conference.  By the time of the 2011 gathering, I'm sure that you will, too, be excited about the amazing progress that's occurred during these short months.

As we continue to finalize plans for the upcoming conference in Las Vegas in March, I come to you with the following requests:

  • Are you a pet funeral home/pet memorialization company who's business relies mainly on being a resource to veterinarians, with the majority of your marketing efforts being done directly to pet parents?  If so, we are looking for individuals to participate in a discussion panel at the convention.  For more information on the description of this session, view the website at  Please let me know by Friday, January 7, 2011, if you are interested in participating on this panel.
  • Would you like to get more active on one of the committees within the PLPA?  The current committees are - Standards and Ethics Committee, Education Committee, Supplier Committee, and the Marketing Committee.  Drop me an email at with your request on WHERE you'd like to have a more active role!  Remember, the PLPA is YOUR association - we can only be successful with YOU, the member, being active and the voice of our association.

Thanks, to all of you for a wonderful beginning to the PLPA!  As we complete our first year, the success of our very young association has been nothing less than encouraging and exciting.  Here's to our second year with more growth and progress!

Bill and I look forward to seeing all of you in Las Vegas!  If you haven't made your reservations, I encourage you to get those in for this amazing convention!

See you in March!
