Did you know?
The 2022 Conference Planning Subcommittee consists of P&S employees who are on Council as well as P&S employees who are not on Council. All of the conference committee members have volunteered their time, effort, and energy to coordinate this 10th annual event.

It takes many, many hours of planning to put on an all-day conference for approximately 400 P&S Employees! Particularly one that offers our fellow P&S employees a great opportunity to network with each other and learn new skills to take back to the office.
