Dear KPTA Members:

Fall is here and before you know it winter will be here.

I want to take this opportunity to thank Pam Shepherd for her outstanding leadership in putting on a great KPTA Bi-Annual conference.  As always she amazes me how she always out tops the previous conference.  We look forward to our next conference which will be our 40th year anniversary of KPTA.  I’m sure Pam is already planning.

I also would like to thank Shirley, Freda, and James for all the work they did in putting together KPTA #8 for various vehicles.  The amount of time the RTEC staff puts in is invaluable and KPTA truly appreciates their dedication and commitment to this Bid process. 

I want to encourage all KPTA members to register for the KBT conference January 15th – 17th, 2020, at the Hyatt Regency in Lexington, KY.  Also remember that we will have our KPTA regular meeting on that Wednesday, January15, 2020, at the Hyatt Regency.  We will let you know whether it will be a luncheon or dinner meeting.

As always, I want to thank the membership for their ongoing support of KPTA.
