PMMI’s 2012 Annual Meeting (Sept. 10-12; Spokane, Wash.) will revisit the “Waves of Change…Oceans of Opportunity” theme, with sessions on cloud computing and the future of the economy, then taking a big picture approach to the changes we can see along the road ahead.
“PMMI’s Annual Meeting has always been about the macro view, helping leaders move their companies to greater success,” said Tom Egan, vice president of industry services, PMMI. “With volatile marketplaces and technologies introducing new possibilities every day, the only way to make the most of these changes is to look ahead.”

Attendees can also expect an enlightening discussion from economist Alan Beaulieu of ITR Economics®, who will use his wit and wisdom to help them make sense of the economic news and anticipate what’s on the way.
