Hello Sarah,

The Convention was a blast, sorry you were unable to attend.

PPFA is moving forward.

We have updated our membership database and are getting our Certification Database updated.

We have completed a first revision of the CPF Exam and continuing to work on the Exam and study material to make sure all the questions are referenced in the study material. A New CPF Study Guide will be upload shortly to the online bookstore.

PPFA is working on webinars and hope to have the first one available by mid year if not sooner.

We also are working on additional regional events similar to the one held last October in Washington DC

We will be working to contact members and lapsed members over the next year.

We are working on framing classes which we hope to roll out late this year or early next year.

We will continue to provide PPFA Connect as an online newsletter on a monthly basis

We will hold the Certification Exam throughout the year as needed by members

We will hold the Competition, Digital Competition Entry will be April 1 through July 31 with the International Finals being held in January 2021

We have a PPFA Coordinator (Robin Gentry), an Educational Coordinator (Paul MacFarland), and a Competition Coordinator (Chris Paschke)

We do have the Certification Board and Competition Board

We also are awarding Scholarships this year, application Deadline September 15, 2020

We plan to work on reinstating our Awards Program this year

Oh and we do have a PPFA Phone number for anyone needing to contact PPFA 848-444-5138 or email, rgentry@ppfa.com or info@ppfa.com

So as you can see we have things moving forward. We are always looking for suggestions and people willing to help out.

I hope this helps to answer some questions. Feel free to contact me

Robin Gentry
