I am the President for PPA of Massachusetts and since this area is for discussion-lets start one.

What's working in your state? What's not? Is membership down or up? How many members do you have? How many events do you offer your members per year?

Our Annual Convention is next week and we were disappointed in low print case turnout. Our membership stands at just about 100 right now but many of our members renew at Convention so we have a better picture next week.

It seemed online forums had taken over as the way to learn, thus reducing membership in person to person organizations. But this past year it seems that even the forums have slowed way down and now facebook groups are all the rage. I don't find them to be as user friendly or as helpful as forums so I am hoping to see a resurgence in actual groups.

If you agree-what are steps you are taking/have taken towards that end?
