PIANC 2022 Conference

2022 Annual Convention
August 24-25, 2022 in Winston-Salem

From the Executive's Desk

It’s March which means Daylight Savings Time will be going into effect this month and that Spring is just a few weeks away. It also means that your PIA team is hard at work creating an informative and fun conference for August 24 & 25 in Winston Salem. Registration forms will soon be available. We hope you can join us for some quality education and 12 hours of CE.

Speaking of education, we have been getting a tremendous response to our virtual class offerings especially the CPIA program. To earn this designation, you have to take 3 parts (CPIA 1, 2 and 3). There is no exam but you will be required to take an annual update. PIA members do enjoy a discount on all classes. Not a member? Contact or Lisa at

Where are my golfers? PIA is planning on hosting a golf tournament to support a local charity. Details are still being worked on. If you want to play golf or help work the event, we want to hear from you. Our carrier friends are always big supporters of these events usually bringing a foursome. There will be a limit on the number of golfers, so make sure you sign up quickly when the registration forms come out.

Have a great month!
