    Default Got my Masters...now what

    I got the final 2 merits I needed for my Masters last month.

    Who do I contact at PPA to get my name on the list of candidates receiving degrees at the convention?
    Would that person be Marissa?

    Also, I know a sponsor walks the stage with you, but does PPA allow two sponsors?
    I'd like to have my two daughters walk with me.

    Hi Mark,
    You will get a letter in sept or so telling you that you qualify. Congrats!! I will be proud to recieve mine along with you, Marc Benjamin, Rick Massarini and a host of others. I don't know if you can have two sponsors or not. Check with Marissa and she might be able to clarify it. Again, congrats!

    Hey Mark, Congratulations!!!

    You are on a list and they are checkin' to see if you've been naughty or nice!

    Depending on the outcome, they might contact you about getting your degree.

    So, since it sounds like Mark got his question answered, what do you do regarding comp after you've earned your Master's? Still enter? Will your submissions change? Why? Going after the ASP?

    I hear Jackie will be getting her Craftsman, but may not make the trip. Help me convince her to come.

    Cheri,
    Thank you. That means alot coming from you.

    Dave,
    It was good to see you in Ft. Worth this week. I saw you sleeping on the front row, but I decided you needed your beauty sleep. LOL.

    Don,
    If it comes down to naughty or nice, I'm afraid I'm sunk. LOL.

    Derek,
    Thanks bud. Ya coming to Arizona?

    Todd,
    For me, I will never stop entering. I'm starting on the MEI in 2009, which I hear is much tougher. I'll probably be calling on Cheri for advice when I start that one.

    Marc,
    Was that the convention where we all got snowed in?? OMG...that was a nightmare. Thank goodness for good friends and cold beer.

    That's the one, Jackie and Zack was there too. I think you told us that you'll buy us the whole bar when you get your masters.
