Hello PBIA Instructors


Today is the last day for FREE registration to Summit 2012 (formerly the International Billiard & Home Recreation Expo).  Summit 2012 logo


As an active instructor, all you need to do is register by the end of the day. Use 00003 where it asks you for a BCA Member ID.


See you in Chicagoland, July 18-20, 2012!


Thank you for your overwhelming support for the rebranding of the BCA Instructor program to the Professional Billiard Instructors Association.

Please change your titles on your web sites, email signature blocks, business cards, keyword advertising campaign, etc. to PBIA.  This will help us brand the new organization - which is good for all of us.

We also need you to link your web site and name on your email signature to www.playbetterbillards.com.  Again, this will help us promote certified instruction from PBIA instructors.
