Our education to date has consisted of four multi-state seminars held in Erie, Cranberry, Wilkes-Barre, and success. We look forward to expanding these Multi-State seminars in the coming year. We had planned a basic tax course for October 21-23, 2015 at the Eden Resort in Lancaster. A tough decision was made to cancel this event. Thank you to the few who registered. We will try to offer it again in 2016.

Our Annual Conference and meeting will be held in downtown Carlisle in the Comfort Inn and Suites on Thursday and Friday, November 5 & 6, 2015. We have planned a presentation on The Affordable Care Act/Repair Regulations and much more. We also have a National Representative, Kelly Nokleby with us and she will do a presentation on Day Care Providers. The agenda is available on page 10-11. Registration for this educational event is available on our state website or the National website under Chapters.

The PA Chapter welcomes any time that you can spare to volunteer for us. It can be as short as helping at a seminar one time, or by becoming a board member and serving the Chapter. My contact information is to the left of this article. I encourage you to share your ideas, suggestions, or concerns (good or bad) about the PA Chapter directly with me through my email address or telephone. I very much would love to hear from you.
