1. Share Your Concerns
This is your opportunity to get involved and make a difference in your industry. The PBA Board Meeting is an excellent chance to have your voice be heard. Various committee meetings on everything from government affairs to non-dues revenue, communications, membership, workforce development, workers compensation, PWB, and BSI allow members to participate and help shape the mission of PBA. Don’t you want to be able to be part of something that is working toward a better future for you and your business?
2. Picnic for PaCAH
For the second year in a row, Betsy Dupuis is graciously opening the doors to her home to host a PaCAH picnic event. This year we’re all looking forward to some delicious food, drink, and fun. Rumor has it that there will be a dunk tank on site featuring a few PBA members that you just might want to send into the water! Plus there will be a few other surprises as well. And the best part is that all money raised at the event will be credited to your individual local’s PaCAH goal. You can’t beat it – having fun while raising funds for a fantastic cause.
3. Finally Understand Social Media
Social media is that mysterious marketing aspect that everyone knows about but few understand and know how to use it to their advantage. On Friday at the PBA Board Meeting, we will be hosting an invaluable seminar called Getting Savvy With Social Media. Web Service Specialist (and Master of Social Media) Debbie Kozlovac, of Alliance Business Technology, will share the very best ways for businesses to use the various social media platforms. She’ll tell you the ones you should be using and how to use them to make an impact and market your business in today’s online world.
4. Connect With Colleagues
There’s nothing better than being in a room with like-minded colleagues – people who understand the challenges and triumphs you face in day-to-day business. The Summer Board Meeting brings together builders, remodelers, suppliers, and many others who support the building industry. Attendees can make the most of generating connections with others in the industry. You never know how beneficial those relationships will be. Join us and renew old friendships and make important new ones.
5. Make a Weekend of It!
Come for the Board Meeting, stay for the weekend! State College is a great place to visit. So after the business is done, we encourage you to explore Happy Valley. There are some great restaurants and breweries, outdoor adventures like exploring Mount Nittany, attractions including nearby Penn’s Cave or Penn State’s beautiful arboretum, and for those Lion fans there’s the Penn State All-Sports Museum. Don’t forget a quick trip to the Creamery for the best ice cream around.
So what are you waiting for? The PBA Summer Board Meeting is a great way to get involved, make a difference, connect with others, discover new ways to improve your business, and just have fun.
