As you head into spring break, take a moment to look at what is being offered at NASN's 50th Annual Conference in Baltimore, Maryland this June. Attending a NASN conference is a wonderful and possibly life-changing experience. We encourage you to attend if you never have and come back if you have. PPSN will hold their annual business meeting during this conference and we encourage you to attend and participate.

Please hold the following PPSN related activity dates and times as you plan your conference schedule:

Open House: June 30th, 2018 5-6:30 pm Location: Room to be announced
*** Put on you calendar and hold the time block. Come to our Open House before the business meeting. This is an opportunity to meet and make connections, network and share ideas with fellow PPSNs at a casual get together. This is also an opportunity to meet and speak casually with the PPSN leadership. Please plan to stop by for a short hello or stay longer.

General Business Meeting: June 30th, 2018 7p - 9 pm Location: Waterview C-D
Participate in the PPSN business meeting, meet fellow members and new officers, volunteer for open committees and leadership positions, and vote on pending resolutions.

We look forward to seeing many of you in Baltimore this June 29 - July 3.
