Getting ready for fall and Pursuit Expo 2017! Print

President's Report

Well, I swear a minute ago I was heading to Bid & Proposal Con, then I blinked and now we are halfway through August. Where is the summer going? And can we please slow the rest of it down a bit!!

I hope that you all have had the chance to slow down and recharge your batteries this summer or will in the weeks to come. 

I know that November 9th may seem far off, but rest assured we are working very hard to bring you an outstanding Pursuit Expo this year. Teaming with the Liberty Chapter we are able to bring in an industry leading keynote speaker and keep the costs reasonable...which is great for everyone!!  So head over to the events page and register today...Early Bird Pricing ends on September 8th so don't dealy.

Now, I am happy to share the lineup of presenters for this year's Expo:

In addition to this exciting lineup for the day of the Expo, we are also hosting an Education and Certification day the day before Pursuit Expo 2017 (November 8th). We are offering both Foundation Level Certification, led by Lohfeld Consulting, and the Practitoner Level quick start workshop led by Besty Blackney; as well as a half-day Solutioning Class presented by Mike Parkinson. If you have been thinking about getting or advancing your certification...November 8th is a great day to do it. Additional details and information on how to register can be found on our Events page.

You will be getting more emails in the coming weeks with Abstracts and bios of our presenters and a link to our schedule app so you can plan your day in advance.  I can't wait to see you all at Pursuit Expo 2017!!

Be outstanding,
