P2PGA's Regional Meetings are a chance to come together to share ideas, the how to's of involvement, and learn more together.  We look forward to hearing what volunteers are doing in their communities and learning from their experiences.  You may meet others to partner up with to help implement some of your ideas.  We will be sharing some of P2PGA's latest initiatives and advocacy efforts and how you can become more involved at any level.  We want to hear from you as well and talk about how we can support you in your efforts to grow in leadership.
