PACA Annual Meeting, April 29– May 1, 2005 in Seattle
It’s not too late to join 125+ of your colleagues at the PACA 2005 Annual
Meeting. Registration forms are still available for this event which will be
held from April 29 to May 1 at the beautiful Renaissance Seattle Hotel
located in the heart of downtown Seattle. The program has an outstanding
line-up of speakers and panels, filled with great information for all of our
members. If you haven’t attended an annual meeting in the past, this is your
opportunity to participate in the most informative and co-operative program
in our industry!

We will start off the weekend with our infamous cocktail party on Friday
night where you’ll get a chance to mingle with old and new friends. Saturday
and Sunday’s agenda will include a combination of general sessions and
break-out groups based on the important issues facing our businesses in
2005. And, as always, we will cap off the weekend with another memorable
banquet, this year to be held at the beautiful Typhoon Restaurant.

Hope you can join us!
