2020 Annual Meeting Summary


On behalf of the PMPA Executive Committee, Board of Directors and Staff….a big thank you to the 79 attendees from 40 PMPA companies who attended PMPA’s 87th Annual Meeting at the Big Cedar Lodge in Ridgedale, Missouri October 23-25.  They were treated to absolutely beautiful weather (before the rain and cold came in), a great line-up of speakers presenting the most up-to-date information on PPP loans and labor law issues, as well as an election update from John Guzik and Omar Nashashibi that had everyone glued to their seats!  

The setting of the sprawling, rustic Big Cedar Lodge seemed to match the vibe of attendees – laid back, cautious and comfortable.  Networking thrived, amid face masks and within 6 feet – and we would consider this meeting to be a success.

New officers and board members were announced, award recipients were acknowledged, and birthdays were celebrated! 

Visit the Annual Meeting summary webpage for a look at the speaker PDF presentations – John Guzik and Omar Nashashibi’s two sessions, including the 2020 Election Preview; Michael Guckes and Steve Kline’s Industry Markets Outlook; Melanie Webber’s Top Ten Issues Facing Employers Today; and Gene Barinholtz update on PPP Loans.
