PPFA Convention Classes at WCAF

I pulled out just the PPFA sessions, events, exam, courses to make things a bit clearer. For 2019, the PPFA Education sessions and special events are listed amongst the National Conference sessions - except for Certification exams/courses for which there are additional costs, and the Framing Competition courses and judges meetings.

I hope this helps! (and let me know if I missed anything:)

And as always, nonmembers are very welcome at all PPFA sessions/events, but PPFA members get special pricing.
