In fact, local community engagement is one of the core values of the company, which encourages all employees, starting with local senior executives and general managers, to get involved with local business associations, Lions and Rotary Clubs and generally become part of the fabric of the community. And that's exactly what they did. (more)

PBA Event Reservation Payment Notice

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your incredible support in attending our events! We appreciate your enthusiasm and participation in our workshops, networking and community events.


In the past, the PBA has absorbed any expense for members who registered for events but were unable to attend for various reasons. Unfortunately the cost for holding events has increased and it has become necessary for us to change this practice. Going forward, the PBA will need to charge you for any reservation you are unable to fulfill unless we receive a cancellation notice 48 hours prior to the event. We are sensitive to the fact that last minute schedule challenge occur and we encourage you to send a substitute in your place if you find yourself unable to attend.


For all PBA meetings requiring reservations and a meeting fee, we have always extended a "pay at the door" option to our members and guests and will continue to do so.Recently, we added the option to pay by credit/debit card via PayPal on the PBA website. This option will continue to be available as well.


Again, thank you for your tremendous support! We look forward to seeing you at our upcoming events!
