    Our leadership is hard at work updating PPM as an organization.  There are big things coming in the near future.  A new website, a new marketing plan, and new benefits for our members along with closer integration with GLIP.  

    It's hard work changing the look and plan of an organization that has been around for a long time but times are changing quickly  It's time for a new look and new approach to PPM.  We hope that our members will appreciate the changes in our annual convention and approach to continuing education for the benefit of their careers.
