Invitation from the Chair of the USPLTA

Greetings USPLTA Members!

Start making your plans to attend the 2023 USPLTA Annual Meeting in New Orleans, LA! Book your rooms NOW! Although it is a huge hotel, New Orleans is a popular meeting destination!

Don’t be fooled that this meeting will be all about food, jazz, spirits, and entertainment … We have the bones for a fantastic meeting as well. The convention committee has blended work and the locality of the meeting. Spouses will want to tag along for this meeting; register them to join us for the Welcome Reception, Thursday reception & dinner, and Friday afternoon & evening activities.

Our meeting will be held at the Sheraton on Canal Street, which is on the edge of the French Quarter. The General Session will begin on Wednesday afternoon, September 27. Check out the tentative agenda for specifics on each day’s events, and more will be added throughout the spring and summer as additional speakers confirm. Two of our featured speakers bring something new to our event: Robert Siciliano will address cybersecurity and best practices to protect our personal and business transactions from the dark web, and Jacob Shapiro, a leading expert in global geopolitics, will address the potential impacts on US pulse production and exports. This year, the registration fee includes Friday afternoon and evening activities…some things you just can’t do in most other places in the U.S.!

I’m looking forward to seeing you in New Orleans! If you need any help getting registered or booking rooms, don’t hesitate to contact Kim Monk. She will help you out!

See you in New Orleans!!
