To clarify what Ruth said --
the fee not only includes the lectures
IT INCLUDES THE FOOD AND WINERY TOUR

The sponsor (Nelson’s Moulding and Frame in Traverse City) is paying for the PPFA first year membership for those who join - no fine print included in this deal!

I'm really looking forward to attending! Kudos to everyone who put this event together. It looks like a wonderful combination of fun and education. Not to mention that Northern Michigan is one of my favourite places to visit on my way up to the Upper Peninsula.
Can't wait!

Jerry, contact your local distributors and ask them to host an educational event. A lot of suppliers have annual, bi-annual, or semi-annual events, often coupled with an open house/warehouse sale and a PPFA meeting of the local chapter.

Sometimes one or more manufacturers will cover part of the expenses for education if the distributor asks for help.
