2013 PCCA Convention: Fun-Filled, Information-Packed

May 2013, Vol. 68 No. 5

Former Attorney General Ashcroft devoted much of his keynote address to the tragic events of Sept. 11, 2001, his actions on that day and his role as the nation's top law enforcement official following the attacks. He was on a plane to Milwaukee, WI, when the first World Trade Center tower was hit, and they immediately landed, refueled, and headed back to Washington, D.C. Ashcroft told the people on his plane, "The world will never be the same." He said that the terrorists sought to "take the heart out of America," but the exact opposite happened because while Americans may seem hopelessly divided, "we are united at the core. And that was never more evident than in our unified response following 9/11.”

During the convention, PCCA thanked outgoing President Muse for overseeing one of the most successful years in association history, welcomed new President Glen Amerine of Amerine Utilities Construction, and honored Winston Weaver, Jr., of Rockingham Construction, Harrisonburg, VA, for decades of dedication to PCCA and its Annual Prayer Breakfast.

PCCA members also enjoyed many fun times in Naples, knocking golf balls around, exploring the Everglades and the Gulf Coast, and enjoying the company of colleagues who share many of the same challenges and concerns in their businesses. PCCA's next event is the 2013 Mid-Year Meeting, July 7-10 at The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, CO.
